Autism Supports Discussion

Autism Ontario and The Ontario Autism Coalition proudly presented our Autism Supports Discussion to find out where all four political parties stand on Autism services and supports for people on the spectrum and their families.

This is the first time in Ontario’s history that a public autism supports discussion took place with Provincial leaders at this level leading up to the Ontario election on June 7th.
