Autism or ASD is for life. It profoundly affects development and life experiences and exerts immense emotional and financial pressure on families.

As a Mom with a child with ASD, I have had to fight every day for real help for my child. And I have watched other families fight as hard as I have, and this is simply not right. We should not have to fight for early diagnosis and treatment, we should not have to beg for money to pay for treatment for our children, and we should not have to live in poverty to ensure our children’s well-being.

Walk To Ottawa for ASD

After watching my son hurt for 13 years and not having had the supports he needs, I decided I had had enough and would walk from my Etobicoke home to Ottawa to ask the Federal Government for real help for my family. I talked to my son and he liked the idea.
