Resources

For Children & Families
in the East Kootenays, BC, Canada

Resources are endless. Windy Ridge follows a neuroaffirming approach to Autism supports.  We support neurodiversity and listen to voices of Autistic adults and children to learn for ourselves and lead our way.  Many of these resources reflect this approach. If you are in need of other resources please reach out to us.
