Right now, autism programming for children and youth is changing in our province.

Autism Ontario is pleased to have a position on The Ontario Autism Program Advisory Committee and in this role, will continue to advocate for:

· Seamless, individualized, continually-assessed, evidence-based and effective interventions and supports across the lifespan of all people with ASD. Interventions and supports are provided in a timely and holistic manner with minimal or no waiting to ensure maximum effectiveness and the reduction of family stress.

· The creation of supportive environments and well-planned transitions for services that provide optimal participation, inclusion and success of the child or adult on the autism spectrum.

· Parents/caregivers as active, informed partners in the planning, delivery and evaluation of programs supports for their children and families.

· The need for more ASD-trained and regulated health professionals, educators, behaviour, communication therapists, mental health practitioners and ongoing ASD training to understand, intervene and support people with ASD at all ages and stages of development and life.

· Greater public awareness and understanding of the nature of ASD and ways to see the potential in every person on the spectrum.
