Province Seen To Do Too Little For Autism

Especially by NDP, moms and the wealthiest

In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 1154 Ontario adults, fully two thirds disagree that Ontario is doing enough for autistic children in the province (67%), while just more than a tenth agree the province is doing enough (13%). Disagreement that the government has the autism issue in hand is especially common to the wealthiest ($100K to $250K - 71%), in northern Ontario (69%), among New Democrats (72%) and mothers of children under 18 (70%).

“This is a case where a relatively small number of parents have had a larger impact than their numbers would suggest, and have spread their message to other parents who don’t have autistic children" said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
