Improved clinical services for people with autism
Recently, the Dixville Foundation had the great pleasure of presenting a check for $10,000 to the CIUSSSE de l'Estrie, CHUS, dedicated to the purchase of electronic tablets to the Adaptation-Rehabilitation Service for people with ASD.
Present at the photo shoot: Maxime Massignani, head of the ASD department, speech therapists-Claudine Charbonneau, Christiane Dupont and Laurie-Anne Picard. The cheque was presented by Daniel Fortier and Donald Warnholtz of the Dixville Foundation.
This amount, raised by the fundraiser launched during Autism Month, was a great success. We would like to thank all the donors who generously participated to make this project a reality.
The team of speech therapists have been using the tablets for a few months now for assessments, interventions and for loaning them to people with autism and their families to help them communicate, develop, and improve their social skills.
Here is an view of what the screen offers them as an intervention tool:
