Self-employed workers

Are you registered with a respite or care service organization? 

Or are you a student in special education or social work? 

Do you want to work with autistic people on a self-employed basis? 


Trait d’Union Outaouais can connect you with our members. As a self-employed worker, you can establish schedules and working conditions with the families who reach out to you.  

TUOI offers you basic training for this purpose through its “Autism-Friendly” program.  This short program helps you learn more about autism and its characteristics, and how to adapt your approach in order to create a more positive experience with an autistic person and their siblings.   

After receiving your “Autism Friendly” certification, your name and contact information will appear online in our list of self-employed workers, which is only available for TUOI member families


For additional information about upcoming training dates for the “Autism Friendly” program, please go to the News and Events section on our website or email us at amidesautistes@traitdunionoutaouais.com to request an invitation.
