Yesterday, the Ontario Autism Coalition (OAC)  released a new report  titled A New Horizon [pdf]

From their web page:

The OAC’s top five recommendations call upon the Ministry of Education to:

  1. Increase and improve training in special education for teacher candidates;
  2. Revise PPM 140 and enforce its application;
  3. Reform education funding with a focus on a needs-based approach to special education funding and more accountability for money transferred to school boards;
  4. Allocate funding to hire more EA’s and to deliver more extensive training in Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) for all those who work with autistic students; and
  5. Establish a Demonstration School and/or a Provincial School for students with autism.
