Educational workers implore Government to support students with autism

March 7, 2019 — OSSTF/FEESO is one of five educational workers’ unions that have released a joint statement strongly urging the government to rethink its reckless approach to the Ontario Autism Program and put the needs of children first.

The statement calls upon the government to take swift action to:

Ensure that the necessary supports and direct, public and not-for-profit services are in place for children with autism in Ontario.

Immediately institute more school-based supports for children, including funded training for educational workers and increased funding for special education teachers, educational assistants, psychologists, behavioural therapists, school support counsellors, child and youth workers and speech-language pathologist

Invest wisely with our public dollars by supporting and protecting our public schools and our public services.
