Ontario’s government is engaging in a month-long series of public consultations on how children and youth with autism, including those with complex needs, can be better supported. This is the largest consultation on autism in the history of the province.
Parents, families, clinicians, educators, school boards and other experts are invited to participate in the telephone town hall consultations taking place throughout May. We hope to hear from as many people as possible to help shape how we can reduce barriers for children with autism, while also looking specifically at enhancements to the Ontario Autism Program.
To register please select a date and time you would like to participate in from the dates listed in the sign-up box options. Then please ensure you provide your name and phone number.
