Support the Ontario Autism Programme

During the past two weeks I have heard from many families in York South-Weston affected by the changed to the already struggling Ontario Autism Program.  Parents and caregivers are already feeling depleted, and at a loss.  These changes will shatter the lives of these families, caregivers and agencies that have real knowledge and experience.

 

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:

  • WHEREAS every child with autism deserves access to sufficient treatment and support so that they can live to their
    fullest potential;
  • WHEREAS the Ontario Autism Program was badly broken under the Liberals, and the changes introduced by the
    Conservatives have made it worse;
  • WHEREAS the new funding caps are based on age and income, and not the clinical needs of the child;
  • WHEREAS Ontario needs a true investment in evidence-based autism services that meets the needs of autistic children
    and their families;

WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to direct the Ministry of Children, Community
and Social Services to invest in equitable, needs-based autism services for all children who need them.
