WHO we are....

The Next Step Autism Program is a branch of the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre providing an umbrella of services to children with autism (autism spectrum disorder - ASD). Since 2002 this program has held the highest level of international accrediation (CARF) for community autism programs. We believe that each child with autism has a right to equal opportunities to develop their abilities to their fullest potential.

Next Step Autism is a fee for service program. Parents and caregivers pay for the program with the Autism funding that they receive from the provincial government for that purpose.

Let us be a part of your NEXT STEP!
