Many of you have seen our first roadmap called the “Ottawa Autism Roadmap” which was geared towards the pre-diagnosis and diagnosis phase of autism. Since that time we have been researching and putting together a roadmap for school aged children and their parents to help navigate through life in the school system. This road map will be applicable to all children with special needs, not just autism. The goals are the following :
– provide a general visual roadmap for parents to use as a guide during the school year.
– provide important information about laws, policies, services and tools that parents may not otherwise know about.
– to empower parents to take control of their child’s experience at school to help the child achieve their highest potential.
– to make life easier and less stressful for the entire family!
We are currently working very hard and putting the finishing touches on this document! We will be releasing it very early in September. Please stay tuned to this site, our Facebook page or our Twitter page to stay informed.
As always, we welcome your ideas and feedback.
