Members of Autism Advisory Panel Announced
The members of the new 20-member Autism Advisory Panel have been announced. This new panel will provide recommendations to Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services, on the best way to incorporate consultation feedback into the Ontario Autism Program.
Ontario intends to double the current level of funding to ensure children with autism receive the appropriate supports.
“We continue to hear from families about how the Ontario Autism Program can better address the needs of children with autism,” said MacLeod. “This advisory panel brings together people well-versed on autism to provide important advice and guidance.”
