Sudbury autism parents will travel to Queen's Park on Feb. 18 to join the Ontario Autism Coalition in a protest against the Ford government's delays to the Ontario Autism Program.

It has been a little more than a year since the Ford government announced sweeping changes to the province's autism program and Sudbury families are still fighting for a need-based funding model for children and youth with autism.

In the wake of the changes announced on Feb. 6, 2019, Sudbury's autism parents established the Northern Ontario Autism Alliance and the group has been pushing to have the voices of Northern Ontario heard.
