BBB AUTISM AT HOME
FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES
YORK REGIONBBB Autism Support has been a help to families all over the world who are touched by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
We debuted in 1998 in the form of a small online 'club' and website. Both quickly grew to the point where the website featured over a thousand links and many original essays and documents written by founder Liz Cohen. The club grew and evolved until it became what it is today, an MSN community with membership well into the three digit mark.
In 2005, BBB Autism at Home Services was born, providing York Region families with information, support, education, advocacy and (perhaps most importantly) experience.

Liz Cohen, Parent Support Manager
Liz Cohen developed an interest in
Autism Spectrum Disorders when her son was diagnosed with autism at a very young
age. She has attended numerous workshops and courses and participated in dozens
of public speaking and teaching opportunities.
In 1998, Liz created ‘BBB Autism Online Support Network’ an Internet based service for parents and professionals consisting of a support community, website and e-newsletter.
She volunteers with Autism Ontario (AO) York Region Chapter, is heavily involved with York’s Autism Kids (ASK) Camp and maintains the AO York Region Chapter’s website.
She has contributed original
articles to various magazines and online publications and was interviewed in
2004 on City Online, on City TV (Toronto).
The most important hat she wears, however, is “Mom of” and she considers herself blessed to be amongst a group of such empowered people!
“I have been a Regional Support Leader for Autism Society Ontario (provincially) and am principal author of “Children Diagnosed with Autism; What to Expect and Where to Get Help”. I have extensive training in many areas of ASD (including communication, behavioural, ABA/IBI, sensory, diagnostics, various therapies, Spec Ed in Ontario and much more), been a speaker at hospitals, conferences, Geneva Centre for Autism, Kerry’s Place Autism Services, Autism Society Ontario, Catholic Children's Aid Society, York University, TREADD, OADD, and more…plus, I operate a website and support network that has helped thousands of parents all over the world – in a voluntary capacity. Probably my biggest credential is living the life every day as I am the mother of a wonderful boy with autism. So, when I am talking about filling out forms for funding, not only do I know how to do it – I’ve done it personally!
The best part about the services offered is that they have been modeled on a wish list put together by parents like you – everything we wish we’d known in the early days. You know the advice will be practical and useful.”
