The parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Nova Scotia are requesting your support as we stand together to ask the Nova Scotia Government to take action to do better for our children.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects 500,000 Canadians. Supporting an individual with autism is beyond the financial means of most Canadians!

Intensive, early intervention has proven effective in the treatment of ASD. Children in Nova Scotia are not being offered an extension on their intensive therapies that were suspended due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Children awaiting services are losing valuable time while they remain on lengthy wait lists. 

The patchwork of federal and provincial programs currently in place fails to support people with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Major life transitions pose one of the greatest challenges for families, and transition supports are insufficient for our vulnerable children to be set up successfully to thrive.

Please join us in our effort to enhance and extend services to kids with Autism in NS!

Thank you!
