In 2020, CASDA put together policy development working groups, in partnership the Kids Brain Health Network (KBHN), to focus on the priority areas for a National Autism Strategy. These working groups produced over 15 policy briefs with specific recommendations for immediate action in five areas of federal jurisdiction: access and affordability, employment, research and governance, housing, and information.
The aim of these briefs is to aid and support the federal government in taking actionable and effective steps towards the development of a National Autism Strategy. Their contents reflect the opinions and views of a wide range of engaged stakeholders, including Autistic Canadians, service providers, researchers, and other stakeholders who are dedicated to move the Strategy forward.
It is our goal to equip and empower you to advocate for action towards a National Autism Strategy.
