Ontario’s Autism Parent Resource Kit

April 02, 2014
Today, on World Autism Awareness Day, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) is launching Ontario’s Autism Parent Resource Kit. 

The Kit was developed by talking to families whose lives have been changed by Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many service providers, researchers and other professionals also contributed their expertise. It is a new, comprehensive online resource to help families better understand autism and the range of services and supports available in Ontario.
 
The Kit includes information, tools and resources about:
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis and treatment
  • Everyday living
  • Common transitions
  • Health care
  • Parenting and family support
  • Tools to track assessments, diagnosis information, treatment planning and subsequent progress
  • References to current services in Ontario and up-to-date research
MCYS wants this kit to be designed by families for families.
 
MCYS is asking parents, caregivers and families to submit their design ideas, with a concept that reflects their experience and perspective. They can use original artwork or photos that would be featured on the first page of the kit.
