Welcome. The Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism provides services for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
With the support of parents and caregivers, we work to empower each individual to achieve their social, emotional, academic and vocational goals.
We had planned to host the 4th Annual BBQ for Autism on Saturday, August 15, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Due to the current situation, we have opted to postpone the BBQ until next year … but we found ourselves still wishing we could celebrate.
While fundraising has always been a major part of our annual BBQ for Autism, it’s about more than that … it’s also about spending time with wonderful people knowing that they care about our exceptional children and adults as much as we do.
To that end, we were hoping that those of you who would have been there to honour the evening with us will instead spend that evening together with those in your social bubbles with a #StayInCookOut, and BBQ up your favorite dishes.
We are honoured to be a charity recipient of this year’s VW Turtle Race being held on September 27, 2020, presented by Volkswagen of Kamloops, and equally honoured to be a recipient of Kamloops This Week’s Christmas Cheer campaign. The VW Turtle Race has a long history here in Kamloops, and uses plastic turtles created with materials safe for the environment. They also ensure to collect the turtles up at the end of the day. Please visit the link for further information on how to support the race as well as learn about the prize options.
We have some tickets here at the Centre, or they can be picked up at any Save-On Foods location here in town. If you visit their website (linked below), you can also request them to contact you to arrange ticket purchase.
