Positive Advocacy Resources

Advocacy is about securing, protecting and advancing the rights of one’s self or others. People on the autism spectrum/autistic people have rights. Our system has enacted legislation and regulations to support the needs of children, youth and adults on the autism spectrum. All programs and services must be in compliance with current legislation and regulations. Parents and self-advocates, however, may have to strongly advocate to ensure that their rights or their child’s rights are met. Most effective advocates share a combination of important knowledge and skills: An understanding of

Instruments de revendication positive

L’action revendicatrice consiste à faire respecter, à protéger et à faire progresser ses propres droits ou ceux des autres. Les personnes autistes ont des droits. Le gouvernement a adopté des lois et règlements pour répondre aux besoins des enfants, des adolescents et des adultes autistes. Tous les programmes et services doivent être conformes aux lois et règlements en vigueur. Cependant, les parents et ceux qui défendent eux-mêmes leurs droits doivent parfois déployer beaucoup d’efforts pour faire respecter leurs droits et ceux de leur enfant. Les défenseurs les plus efficaces possèdent à la

SEAC

This committee is made up of volunteer representatives from local associations that work to further the interests and well-being of one or more groups of exceptional children or adults. The SEAC representatives make recommendations to the boards of education about the establishment and development of special education programs and services for exceptional students — including students with ASD. Where Autism Ontario has a Chapter, we too have representation on

Les différents propos concernant le TSA

Les différents propos concernant le trouble du spectre de l’autisme Il existe de nombreuses façons d’aborder le trouble du spectre de l’autisme (TSA). Nous pouvons l’aborder sous l’angle médical, nous pouvons le décrire par les comportements observés, nous pouvons évoquer les taux de prévalence, nous pouvons parler de détection précoce et de l’importance de l’intervention basée sur des preuves en bas âge, de la nécessité de fournir un soutien aux personnes TSA tout au long de leur vie. Nous pouvons aussi rappeler à quel point les actions revendicatrices jouent un rôle de premier plan dans le

Our History

The Ontario Society for Autistic Children was founded in 1973 as a registered charity by a group of parents seeking to establish educational and support services for their children. Up until 1973, families were often forced to institutionalize their children because educational and treatment programs were not available. In the years since incorporation, we have seen great strides in research into the causes and treatment of autism and into the development of educational and community-based services for individuals with ASD. In 1974, the organization was instrumental in conceiving of

Notre histoire

La Ontario Society for Autistic Children est un organisme de bienfaisance fondé en 1973 par un groupe de parents qui cherchait à mettre en place des services éducatifs et de soutien pour leurs enfants. Avant 1973, les familles devaient souvent placer leurs enfants dans des institutions parce qu’aucun programme d’éducation et de traitement n’était disponible. Dans les années qui ont suivi notre constitution en société morale, nous avons observé des progrès considérables dans la recherche sur les causes et le traitement de l’autisme ainsi que dans le développement de services éducatifs et

Janet's Story

Why does the work of Autism Ontario still matter after 40 years? It’s really simple. Autism Ontario is extended family for parents with loved ones diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Autism Ontario matters. Our family joined Autism Ontario in 1993, shortly after our daughter Grace was diagnosed with autism. Our membership number was 109, hinting at the humble beginnings of this organization. But that was also a different time. When Grace was diagnosed, we were told that the incidence of autism was only one in 10,000, not the 1 in 66 it is today. When you donate to Autism Ontario

Ethel's Story

My Autism Family My daughter Stacy was born in 1970, and diagnosed with autism at the age of 4. At that time, various doctors and specialists we saw had no knowledge of what autism was, and told me to ‘put her in an institution’. I was appalled, how could a mother lock her child away? What was I going to do? The answer was simple; I would find a way to raise our daughter. When Stacy started nursery school, I met other parents struggling to support their children on the spectrum. In response to these struggles, we joined the York Region Chapter of Autism Ontario and it was there I found a place

River's Story

When my son, River Christie-White, started school, he did not talk. In fact, until the age of about 8, there were no words. And until River was born, I did not know what autism was. Today, Autism Ontario can be there for you when you get the diagnosis, or in fact, at any time you need help. Their staff and volunteers give every day. Now, at 17, my First Nations teen speaks in front of crowds across Canada and the United States, spreading not just awareness about autism, but the need for inclusiveness for all, and particularly supports for children and families with special needs on reserves.
