Out + About

Generously supported by the

Out + About with Ausome is a 3-phase partnership between Ausome and local organizations designed to create more inclusive spaces and opportunities for children and youth with autism in our community.

Out + About with Ausome provides training and support to equip local sport and recreation organizations with the skills and tools required to run their own inclusive programming. Phases 1 and 2 of an Out + About are run by Ausome—registration is exclusively for Ausome members. In the 3rd and final phase—with support from Ausome—the partner organization builds and runs their own, open-to-all, autism-friendly program.

2022–2023 Out + About Partners:

The RA was lucky enough to be involved in the delivery of an Out & About swim event last
summer and it was simply the best! Our Aquatic staff were ecstatic to help create the autism-friendly and inclusive swim event. The kids’ and parents’ smiles were infectious. We appreciate how much Ausome Ottawa cares and their dedication to enabling kids to enjoy what our community has to offer. It is a privilege to work together, and we can’t wait to do it again!
