Launch of Ontario's Autism Parent Resource Kit

On World Autism Awareness Day, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services launched the Ontario’s Autism Parent Resource Kit.  
The Kit was developed by talking to families whose lives have been changed by Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many service providers, researchers and other professionals also contributed their expertise. It is a new, comprehensive online resource to help families better understand autism and the range of services and supports available in Ontario.
The Kit includes information, tools and resources about: 
• Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis and treatment
• Everyday living 
• Common transitions 
• Health care 
• Parenting and family support
• Tools to track assessments, diagnosis information, treatment planning and subsequent progress
• References to current services in Ontario and up-to-date research
We want this kit to be designed by families for families. 
We are asking parents, caregivers and families to submit their design ideas, with a concept that reflects their experience and perspective. They can use original artwork or photos that would be featured on the first page of the kit.

CDC Releases Updated Prevalence Numbers: 1 in 68

New Autism Prevalence Numbers Released Today in the US:
CDC Reports 1 in 68 Children Affected with ASD 
The CDC announced today that autism affects 1 in 68 individuals under 21 living in the U.S.  
For the hundreds of thousands of people who have, or are now living with autism around the world, the pressing needs are for support, education, and health care. There is currently a lack of training infrastructure for professionals who might help this population as it ages, and there is an urgent need for evidence-based treatments. These shortcomings are acute in terms of early intervention as well as in treatments for symptoms, and the challenges experienced by adults. 
Because so many research studies now demonstrate complex genetic/environmental (epigenetic) interactions as potentially causal, it is imperative that the Federal government fund investigation of the environmental aspects in order to protect the health and future opportunities for generations to come.

Families with children with autism face staggering costs - University of Calgary Report

Families face staggering costs for autism care
This newly released support looks at the value of caregiver time - the cost of support and care. This detailed and extensive report "finds a patchwork of unequal and incomplete supports for individuals living with autism spectrum disorders. Gaps are particularly evident once individuals leave the public school system, where they are at least provided with some form of day support."
