Education Topics

Autism Ontario continues to listen and advocate on behalf of people and families affected by autism in the Ontario education system and knows that school issues continue to remain one of the most significant areas of challenge to families affected by ASD.  Autism Ontario participated in a consultation process held by the Ministry of Education to help build the “Next Phase in Ontario’s Education Strategy”. Our recommendations were delivered to the Ministry and asked to be given strong consideration.
