Human development is amazingly intricate. Stressors (such as exposure to alcohol or other drugs, family stress or trauma, and genetic differences) influence how our cells grow and connect, causing diverse abilities for the person as they get older.

The world is learning a lot about developmental stress, but there are still a lot of questions around what people are experiencing and how to help meet needs. That’s why we exist. Through expanding health and social services like assessment, therapy, primary care, and community strengthening, the Asante Centre has nearly 20 years of experience making the world a better place for people with developmental diversities.

We know that needs cross every aspect of a person’s life, so we focus on building up systems that already exist. We are passionate about supporting people and families to better understand themselves, and helping communities provide more effective care. We work to create opportunities for individuals with diverse abilities to share their expertise, and for Indigenous communities to lead our efforts towards Reconciliation. We are listening to the health needs of people with developmental diversities and responding.
