Autism Ontario Focus Group for Parents of children 0-6
Simcoe County Preschool Focus Group Fall 2018
Are you the parent or caregiver of a child under the age of 6 with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder? We want to hear from you!
We are looking for people to join us for our ‘Preschool Focus Group.’ Our goal is to better understand the experiences and challenges families are currently facing when it comes to accessing information after receiving a diagnosis. Specifically, we want to know how parents want to:
- Receive information post-diagnosis about their child’s diagnosis
- Connect with services such as the Ontario Autism Program
- Gather information about transitioning into the school system
Your feedback and input is very important and will help inform community providers throughout Simcoe County.
We have two ways for you to participate. Please register for our in person play group or our online webinar. Thank you so much for your participation!
