NEW: Parent/Caregiver Survey!/Nouveau sondage d’Autisme Ontario!

This survey is intended only for parents and/or caregivers of people with ASD living in Ontario.

As you may know, the Ontario Government is in the midst of changing how it provides services to children and youth with ASD. The feedback you provide here will help us give timely and informed feedback on province-wide initiatives which we will share with the government.

We will also incorporate these valuable perspectives into our future programs and our advocacy work.

Survey Link

Le présent sondage s’adresse exclusivement aux parents et/ou fournisseurs de soins de personnes qui vivent avec un TSA en Ontario.

Comme vous le savez peut-être, le gouvernement de l’Ontario s’apprête à modifier ses méthodes de prestation de services aux enfants et aux adolescents qui ont un TSA. Votre rétroaction nous aidera à formuler, en temps opportun, des commentaires éclairés sur les initiatives provinciales que nous partagerons avec le gouvernement.

Vos points de vue nous seront également fort utiles pour élaborer nos futurs programmes et orienter nos prochaines actions revendicatrices.

Beyond Bricks and Mortar: Housing Options for People on the Autism Spectrum/Au-delà des briques et du mortier : Les possibilités de logement pour les personnes qui vivent avec un trouble du spectre de l’autisme (en anglais)

Date: Friday, April 28, 2017 12:00 PM EDT/Le vendredi 18 avril 2017, à 12 h (midi)

Francophone viewers, please note, the French webinar broadcast will commence at 1:00pm, following the English webinar scheduled at 12:00pm.

Note à l’intention des spectateurs francophones : La diffusion du webinaire en français commencera à 13 h, après celle du webinaire en anglais, prévue à 12 h (midi).

For some adults on the spectrum, home can be a place of independence, provided there is the flexibility to access the right clinical supports to address the complexities of life on the spectrum. For others, home can mean living with a parent or caregiver well into adulthood and for some, home is the place you have to go to live in order to receive the support you need.

Pour certains adultes autistes, la « maison » est un lieu de vie autonome, pourvu qu’ils aient accès aux services cliniques dont ils ont besoin pour faire face aux aspects complexes de leur existence. Pour d’autres, la « maison » est l’endroit où ils habitent avec un parent ou un fournisseur de soins adulte, et pour d’autres encore, la « maison » est une résidence où ils reçoivent les services nécessaires.

Six months after the release of the Ontario Ombudsman’s report “Nowhere to Turn”, greater choice, flexibility, inclusion and inter-ministerial partnerships now drive some of the newest MCSS initiatives to address crisis involving adults with Developmental Disabilities in Ontario.

Autism Ontario continues to be part of this collective outcry, recognizing how disheartened families were by the MCSS response to the Select Committee Final Report that downplayed the crisis in Developmental Services Ontario and instead, shifted focus to processes and programs which were already in play.
