  • Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre is a charitable organization located in Red Deer. What began as a single program, initiated by a small group of dedicated parents 33 years ago, has evolved into a multi-faceted resource centre offering diagnostic assessment and intervention services to children with complex needs. Each day we strive to live our mission to provide hope to children with special needs, the families who love them, and the communities that care for them. Our core principle, as set by the founding families, states that 'every child should have access to the services he/she requires to reach his/her potential'.
  • This year Aspire will serve 350+ children with special needs including:
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Down Syndrome and other chromosomal disorders
  • sight, hearing, and speech impairments
  • cognitive and physical complications
