The Galloway After School Program (GASP) is a socialization, life skills, and activity group for adolescents and young adults in East Toronto who have been diagnosed with Autism or a mild to moderate developmental challenge.

Participants will learn life skills such as cooking, street-safety, hygiene, managing and understanding emotions, and healthy relationships. GASP helps meet individual needs and provides a safe, structured, and fun environment where they can learn and develop more independence skills.
