Child & Family Services
Bridge to Care supports individuals with Autism and Asperger Syndrome from their own homes, in residential care settings and in the community. Each individual’s needs vary, some might require support with basic daily living skills, communication or social skills support and other individuals might just like a ‘break' or an alteration to their routine. In this case, Bridge to Care offers services to the individual and/or their family members.

The program is voluntary; parents remain the guardians for their child and are responsible for all decision-making and the usual expenses of raising a child until their child turns 18 years old.
The FSCD program uses a family-centred approach to provide Alberta parents with funding to access a range of supports and services that strengthen their ability to promote their child's healthy growth and development. In addition, FSCD assists with some of the extraordinary costs of raising a child with a disability.
