"We are grateful for RBC's support. One of the many benefits of the RBC Anxiety Management Program is training therapists from community agencies, which is helping to build much needed capacity in the community in support of kids with autism," says Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou, Co-Lead of the Autism Research Centre at Holland Bloorview. "We hope to train therapists from 10 agencies in the Greater Toronto Area by the end of the five-year program."
