Making Small Talk started off as York Autism Centre with Linda Hurren running Social Skills classes and providing some private IBI services in King City in 2007. As her reputation grew in the community so did Making Small Talk. The company remained in King City for 5 years as it grew to include new services and new staff members. With the business growing it was time for a move to a bigger location, so in the fall of 2013 Making Small Talk relocated to Vandorf. This new location offered Making Small Talk a larger space to expand and add new programs. With all of our supportive families following along ,the new building became home. Making Small Talk was able to launch many new programs such as Square Peg Project and the School Readiness Program. Making Small Talk now offers services for Children, Young Adults and Families throughout York Region.
