Autism study findings being prepared for publication…

October 17, 2012

In a qualitative study we examined the sometimes-contentious arena of policy-making for children with autism. We explored the perspectives of policy-makers, researchers and parents of children with autism to learn how programs and services for these and other vulnerable children may be improved.

We completed interviews with people from all three groups, across the country, and presented our findings at the May 2012 International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) held in Toronto. Research participants will be sent a report and given the chance to provide feedback.

Findings are now being prepared for publication.
