Autism Program

It is with an extremely heavy heart that we tell you that due to funding pressures that have escalated year by year, the Autism Program of Starbright Children’s Development Centre will end on December 20th of 2019. Our well-trained and dedicated staff have provided services to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and their families for many years. On November 19th, our staff learned of the devastating news. That same evening, the parents of the children in our Autism Program were let know, as were the parents on our waitlist for the Autism Program. The therapies and programming offered by Starbright through its other departments will continue to provide their early intervention services with the passion and compassion for which the Centre is known.

Starbright was so privileged today to receive from Burnett Florists and Gifts in Kelowna 50 floral bouquets to hand out over the day to our clients as part of “Give a Smile’! Thank you Burnett Florists! You definitely made so many smiles today!
