Social Stories and Visual Activities to assist your child during Lockdown

The Education and Training Hub for Autism Needs (ETHAN) is a non-profit organization with the mission of educating and empowering parents, caregivers, and professionals to better support autistic individuals. We support autistic children as well with Occupational and Speech Therapy, communication tools and strategies as well as daily living skills, emotional regulation, and social skills.

We are driven to create a fully inclusive and accepting community in Mossel Bay, and surrounds, and do this through free autism acceptance training at schools, shops, restaurants, businesses, and municipal departments.

Our latest and most exciting project is a new autism centre in our local community of Kwanonqaba. This centre will give much needed support to autistic children and adults through various therapies, a musical centre, training facilities, support groups, skills development, community education and local employment opportunities.

We need your help in achieving this dream (and many other smaller projects) and encourage you to click here to view our list of requirements as well as our bank details. Any donation will make a difference.
