Aspire has grown from a small gathering of dedicated parents and professionals with a vision to a large, busy charitable organization offering evidenced-based programs and services that are family-centered.

Today, Aspire staff visit families in their homes, provide assessment and intervention services, consult for children in the school systems, work closely with other community providers and agencies and provide training to teachers and Educational Assistants in schools all over Western Canada.

By working together to discover potential Aspire Special Need Resource Centre encompasses the big picture for the best outcome. Being a parent of a child with special needs can feel helpless and uncertain. We are here to provide hope.


A charitable organization providing hope to children with special needs, the families who love them and the communities that care for them.


Working together to discover potential.


We were born from the concern, compassion and commitment of a group of parents and professionals who refused to believe that their special children couldn’t have their needs better served and their potential more effectively reached.

From our earliest days gathered at a kitchen table, we have been driven by passion, vision and a belief that, for advancement to occur in the service delivery for children with special needs, change has to be embedded in our very approach to doing business.

We believe that every child is an individual and that innovation and integration is integral to service delivery. We believe that families are the foundation stone of all thriving children and we invest our energy and passion in supporting the entire family unit.

We believe that, just as children aren’t one dimensional, neither are their needs and, as such, we view each case through a holistic lens. Just as community teamwork brought us together, so too does teamwork now define our approach to care. From a small, passionate group to a large, busy organization, we foster and honour the relationships that give us strength, fuel our optimism and move us forward.
