QuickStart — Early Intervention for Autism (QuickStart Autism) is a grassroots charity that began in Ottawa in 2008 by a grandmother who wanted to help children get early intervention and help families navigate how to get help. QuickStart Autism incorporated and became a registered charity in 2010.
Realizing that Autism is expensive and wait-times are very long, often years, all QuickStart programs are offered at no cost to the family. We are not a government agency and we receive no government funding.
As a way of giving back, Suzanne Jacobson (Founder & President) donates her time to operate QuickStart.
We are making a difference! You can too.
We always appreciate your feedback on any of our programs.
