Help inform the newly elected government about how to improve autism services!

Posted June 20, 2018

Parents and primary caregivers of a child or youth diagnosed with autism are invited to give input about the impacts of autism policies, programs and supports on child and family well-being in Ontario through an online survey. We will share the study findings with the autism community, the general public and the incoming government in the hopes that they will use your feedback to improve autism services in this province based on the needs and input of families. For this reason, it's crucial that our findings are reflective of as many families as possible.  The survey should take approximately 15-30 minutes of your time. As a small token of thanks for your participation, you may choose to enter a draw for a grand prize of $500 or one of three consolation prizes of $100, following completion of the survey.  

Please note, this survey is separate from the previous Provincially Speaking survey administered by Autism Ontario.

This project has been reviewed and approved by the Wilfrid Laurier University Research Ethics Board (REB #5422). If you have any questions regarding our study, do not hesitate to let us know. We thank you sincerely for your consideration.
