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
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.
