A town in Newfoundland and Labrador has been recognized as autism-friendly. Hotels offer sensory rooms, and adapted rooms and menus.  Counsellors in sports’ programs have specialized training to work with children on the spectrum. First responders have “Autism and Safety” kits with them in all emergency situations. Store clerks and restaurant waiters take the time to assist in teaching children basic life skills.  And I’m sure there’s so much more that video couldn’t capture.  Let’s all try to make our own towns a little more like Channel-Portes aux Basques!
