A major autism treatment service provider in northwestern Ontario said it will no longer be able to provide families fee-for-service options, as a result of the Progressive Conservative government's changes to the Ontario Autism Program.

Child and Community Resources, which offers autism therapy and behaviour analysis in Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Kenora and Algoma, said changes to the funding model have reduced the organization to a "shell" of what it used to be – losing up to 90 employees due to a lack of funding.

With a limited number of therapists and virtually no behaviour analysts the center was forced to issue a memo today telling parents that their children might not be able to receive treatment.
