Autism Ontario works to support people on the spectrum and their families to reach their potential. Through positive advocacy work alongside autistic adults, professional community stakeholders and policy makers, Autism Ontario aims to collaboratively envision and create responsive services and opportunities for autistic adults. Positioning ourselves at the junctions where autistic adults and their loved ones interface with the public and private sectors, Autism Ontario aims to clearly communicate the social and systemic barriers that autistic adults in Ontario are currently facing.

In collaboration with autistic adults and families, Autism Ontario creates an annual adult-specific Provincially Speaking Survey developed as one way to gather information about the issues most important to people on the spectrum and/or their families. Autism Ontario utilizes this information to help inform positive advocacy directions, program development, and educational and experiential content development for the Learning Portal, adult-specific e-newsletter and Autism Matters Magazine.
