Available Now: Autism in Canada - National Needs Assessment Survey For Families, Adults with ASD and Professionals Report


CASDA has now submitted its report to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). The report confirms much of what CASDA members have been saying about the state of supports for Canadians with ASD and their families. Now we have firm data to support our positions and our pleas for action. The report also presents a number of important areas for further study. As well, information about each province, on its own, has been included in the report.
