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

Autism Ontario is undertaking a new survey with researchers from Wilfrid Laurier University. 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.

The study finding will be shared 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 the findings are reflective of as many families as possible.  The survey should take approximately 15-30 minutes of your time.

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 the study, do not hesitate to contact: Dr. Janet McLaughlin, Associate Professor, Health Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University or Dr. Margaret Schneider, Associate Professor, Kinesiology & Physical Education, Wilfrid Laurier University
