For the safety of our community, our offices will remain closed to the general public until April 20th, 2020.

The health and safety of our program participants, visitors, and community partners is the highest priority. Autism Nova Scotia is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following the government’s recommendations to ensure we are safeguarding the health and wellness of our community.

Please check this website or our Facebook page for updates on program or service delivery. You may also leave a message at 902-242-2019 or email us at AnnapolisValley@autismns.ca (Sandy) or AV_RC@autismns.ca (Brenda).

Even though our offices are closed, we continue to work hard behind the scenes to provide resources and information to support our community during this social distancing period. We will be posting helpful resources on our Facebook page. You can also find a list of resources for individuals, families/caregivers, respite workers, employers, and professionals here: http://autismnovascotia.ca/covid19






























The Annapolis Valley Chapter began in 1996 as Vally Autism Support Team (V.A.S.T.)  In 2012 V.A.S.T joined with Autism Nova Scotia in order to work together to enhance programs and services in the Annapolis Valley. The Chapter is led by a group of dedicated volunteers and has now expanded to serve over 250 families.

​Programs in the Annapolis Valley Chapter include: Summer Day Camp, Preschool Playgroup, Social Groups for School-Age Children, Teens and Adults, Therapeutic Riding, Social Skills, Swimming, and much more.   The Chapter also regularly hosts family events, parent support groups, educational workshops and information sessions.  In February 2015 the Chapter opened an Autism Centre in Kingston (565 Main St.) which houses a sensory gym, a calming room and a resource library.  Families and school groups are welcome to drop in during regular office hours.

For all inquiries please contact our office 902-242-2019 or annapolisvalley@autismns.ca​
