Today Autism Ontario sent out a survey for parents to complete about the new Ontario Autism Program. Please, parents, fill out this survey and let the expert committee know that you want coverage for more than just behavioural services! What about occupational therapy, speech and language services and the like? What about developmental approach therapies and approaches that are more cost-effective and incorporate parent coaching? Have your say!
The Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Expert Committee provides advice to the Ministry of Children and Youth Services on current research and best clinical practices for working with children and young people with ASD. In a survey in January 2017, we asked families to provide feedback about ideas that were important to them in developing the new Ontario Autism Program. Your responses were used to guide the development of the Ontario Autism Program Clinical Framework. Families identified a number of important ideas. We are again asking for families’ feedback on some of these important ideas to help us make sure that these ideas are clear and understandable in the Clinical Framework.
Please pass this link on to all the parents you know or work with! Let’s let them know what we need for our children!
