CASDA has written to the all political party leaders and asked how their Party platform will support autism and the Canadian Autism Partnership in the federal election on October 19.
Here are the responses we have received to date:
Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorders Alliance (CASDA) is a national coalition of autism related professionals, family members and community members. Together, we are working to secure the federal government’s commitment to the development of a National Autism Action Plan.
CASDA invites leaders (i.e.: Executive Directors, researchers and government officials) from across the country to be part of this important event and become an integral part of the conversation for change.
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.
