Abby Lowry- Post Secondary Autism Support Manager

Originally from Ontario, moved to NS 11 years ago for school and never went back. Attended StFX for Forensic psychology, then NSCC for their Behavioural Intervention Advanced Diploma. Previously worked for Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre in the Waterville as part of the clinical team, at which time I thought working full time, adopting two stray cats, and completing a Master’s program at the same time was a great idea. Upon completion and successfully writing my board exams, I moved to Halifax and took a job with Autism NS a year and a half ago, overseeing their Post-Secondary Autism Support Services (PASS) program, which supports autistic student in accomplishing their academic -adjacent goals
