The Annapolis Valley Chapter began in 1996 as Valley 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.
