QuickStart — Early Intervention for Autism (QuickStart Autism) is a grassroots charity that began in Ottawa in 2008 by Suzanne Jacobson, 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, QuickStart Autism's Founder & President, donates her time to operate the charity.
We are making a difference! You can too.
