Please complete the Government of Ontario Online Survey for Autism Services ASAP!

The Ontario government has opened up consultation for autism services for only a few weeks. Please complete the online survey ASAP if you are a service provider, caregiver, educator, or have any relationship whatsoever to children with special needs. It is NOT just for parents. First you register, then you are emailed a link to complete the survey. You can also sign up for the upcoming Telephone Town Hall on May 16th, or May 6th if you are in a northern or rural community.

Please let the government know that what we need is to move away from only providing behavioural services and approaches and towards including neuroscience-supported developmental, relational approaches that take into account a child’s developmental level, individual sensory profiles and form connections with our children to inspire relating, communicating and THINKING (rather than being trained to memorize rote skills). You can select from a number of services (occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, respite, etc.) but also choose “Other” and please include “Developmental approach, relationship-based therapies such as DIR/Floortime”, for instance. 

Please take this opportunity have your say!
