WHEREAS every child with autism deserves access to sufficient treatment and support so that they can live to their fullest potential;
WHEREAS the Ontario Autism Program was badly broken under the Liberals, and the changes introduced by the Conservatives have made it worse;
WHEREAS the new funding caps are based on age and income, and not the clinical needs of the child;
WHEREAS Ontario needs a true investment in evidence-based autism services that meets the needs of autistic children and their families;
WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to direct the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services to invest in equitable, needs-based autism services for all children who need them.
