School-Age Children with Autism


Children with autism require a range of support to succeed within the public school system. Families are concerned when they must constantly advocate for their child’s right to an appropriate education. The following links provide a good starting point to gain a better understanding of the British Columbia school system and have relevance for those advocating to protect the rights of children with special needs to access a meaningful education, no matter where they live.

In addition, a keyword search for “education” in the Autism Information Database, generates over 400 links to resources from Ontario, the U.S. and the U.K., in multiple languages. ACT welcomes new resources that will support families and professionals learning from other communities – please submit here www.actcommunity.ca/submitir/
