Resources for Advocacy

Sometimes the support system is not working well to support the needs of children.  The following are documents that can help families know how to proceed towards the resolution of problems with accessing the services that they need.

Empowering Parents: A Guide to Addressing Concerns in Manitoba Schools
(Manitoba Association of Parent Councils, 2015)

A Parent’s Guide to Inclusive Education
(Community Living Manitoba, 2013)

Supporting Inclusive Schools: A Handbook for Developing and Implementing Programming for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder
(Manitoba Education, 2005)


It’s good to know we aren’t alone in this effort in Manitoba – there are groups in other places working to expand understanding and awareness of developmental approaches to autism therapy.  Check these out:
