See Things My Way Centre for Innovation
The See Things My Way Centre for Innovation (STMW) is a new initiative of the Miriam Foundation dedicated to assisting individuals with autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disabilities, and their families. It is funded by the Miriam Foundation’s See Things My Way Fundraising Campaign for improving access to, and the quality of, services across the life span.
The STMW Centre for Innovation launches innovative pilot services and applied research models that serve as exemplars to be replicated in the broader community. The STMW Centre for Innovation intends to launch and/or facilitate pilot models related to: diagnosis services for autism and intellectual disabilities, early intervention for pre-school children, Applied Behaviour Analysis certification program via local universities, specialized classrooms for school-age children, post-secondary integration program for employment and community, long-term community residences and medical/dental services.

In 2010, the Miriam Foundation realized that it had to begin to play a greater role in meeting the growing needs across the lifespan of families touched by ASDs and IDs. Watch this video for more information on the reasons behind the creation of the See Things My Way Centre for innovation.
