CASDA Webinar Series FAQ

During the months of April and May, CASDA hosted a series of webinars related to a National Autism Strategy. During our “Conversations with MP’s” and “Senators at Home” webinars, we opened the discussion to participants and asked them to submit questions to be answered during the webinar. We received such a large amount of questions, that we weren’t able to answer them all during the live webinars. We have collected all of the questions that went unanswered during each webinar and compiled them into a document.
