Ames Family gift boosts CARTE camp for children with autism

The Ames Family Foundation generously donated $10,000 in support of CARTE Academy, a day camp program for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) run by the Centre for Autism Research, Technology and Education (CARTE) at the University of Victoria. CARTE, headed by professor of psychology Dr. Jim Tanaka, is dedicated to enhancing the social and emotional skills of children and adults with ASD. Through their funding for CARTE Academy, the Ames Family Foundation is creating a fun, educational, and inclusive space for children with ASD, in addition to supporting the delivery of workshops for parents and caregivers of children with ASD. We extend our sincere thanks to the Ames Family Foundation!
