Autism service cuts cruel

The Daily Courier (Kelowna)

Sept. 16 marked a sad anniversary for children with special needs in this province.

Last year on this date, B.C.'s Children and Family Development Minister Mary Polak announced funding cuts of more than $3 million for autism services for children under age six.

As a result of this decision, Victoria's Queen Alexandra Centre for Child Health laid off 40 highly trained behavioural interventionists and closed its autism behaviour intervention program.
