The Ottawa Autism Roadmap was designed to be a visual tool to help the parents of children who A) suspect autism, or B) have been newly diagnosed. The Roadmap was conceived on pieces of scrap paper at a coffee shop in Ottawa during a conversation between three Moms with young children on the spectrum. We were comparing notes about our experiences and realized that no process existed for parents to follow, at a time when you need a lot direction and guidance.
The Ottawa Autism Roadmap currently exists as a 1 page PDF with clickable links. There is also a 1 page accompanying “Services and Supports” sheet that you use during and after diagnosis.

Warm regards from the Moms at AAO,
