New Tool from Ministry of Child and Youth Services

The Ministry of Child and Youth Services has put together an Autism Parent Resource Kit.  It shows services available across Ontario.

At first glance, it looks like the kind of comprehensive one-stop site that I've been saying parents need for years.  It lists programs and services, ideas to try at home and resources such as books and websites.

This is another encouraging sign that the government is starting to take autism seriously.  Parents shouldn't be expected to become instant experts on their child's condition and what is available in their community.  Raising a child with autism is time consuming enough without having to add a research degree on top of it.
