About Us

Ausome Ottawa is local registered charity that enriches the lives of kids and their families through sport and recreation.

Our Mission

To enrich the lives of families living with autism through sport.

Our Vision

An opportunity for every kid with autism to participate in sports in a program that meets their needs.

Our Values

No one should be excluded from sports. But for kids with autism, playing sports isn’t always easy. Sometimes, community programs are not designed to meet the needs of kids with autism. In other cases, financially stressed families just can’t afford to enrol, after they have paid for all their child’s therapies.

To fulfill our mission of getting Ausome kids participating in sports programs that meet their needs, Ausome has developed the following 3 priorities:

Programs for Children

Ausome’s programs, lead by professional ABA therapists and trained volunteers, are inclusive, structured, and FUN & FREE! So far we’ve done basketball, soccer, water polo, dance, camp days, baseball, yoga, fine motor, fundamental movement, and more.

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is often an area where children with autism can use support. Ausome runs programs specifically geared towards helping children increase their physical literacy to help them feel more comfortable playing both in the playground and on the sports field.

Education + Training

We have developed a variety of training programs for organizations and individuals to better understand and work with children on the autism spectrum. If you are a coach, instructor, volunteer, teacher, recreation worker, or child care provider, this training is for you!
