Please watch and share.New Autism Ontario Video

This video, which features the incredible Michael McCreary, is a wonderful introduction to autism spectrum disorder. The video was created to support customer service professionals when they provide services or support to people with ASD; however the positive response from the general public has been overwhelming. This video is so accessible and entertaining, it offers something for everyone.

We want everyone to understand autism and to see the potential!

Read the update.Autism Services and Supports for Children

On December 2, 2015 the Auditor General released her Annual Report. The report features a follow-up on the recommendations made in their 2013 Annual Report on Autism Services and Supports for Children.

Of the 19 recommendations 3 have been fully implemented, 13 are in process and 3 have had little or no progress.

We are encouraged by the work done by the government including: - the investment in ensuring families have access to early diagnosis and assessment 
- the implementation of minimum training requirements for educators around ABA principals in the classroom
- the development of processes to assess whether people with ASD made successful transitions.
