At Queen’s Park, NDP MPP @MTaylorNDP@twitter.com is joined by parent Jonathan Loewen, who has 3 sons on the autism spectrum, two of whom received services at Erinoakkids, which is eliminating 300 full-time positions due to Ontario govt’s funding changes

As more lay offs are announced today, the NDP are responding to other layoffs announced at an autism treatment centre as a result of Ford govt changes. @l_stone@twitter.com wrote about that here 👉🏻 theglobeandmail.com/canada/art

@ChildrenON@twitter.com @MacLeodLisa@twitter.com @CHEOhospital@twitter.com For anyone wondering why that $105 million sounds familiar, it’s because @Kathleen_Wynne@twitter.com announced this last year.
@MacLeodLisa@twitter.com continues her tradition of taking credit for @OntLiberal@twitter.com announcements.

So it looks like @CHEOhospital@twitter.com sacrificed autistic children at the altar of paid services in order to prevent @MacLeodLisa@twitter.com from cancelling this Liberal plan.

No. Sorry. But that's not good enough. You want to go to war, you need to present independently (Non US) verified proof and validated intelligence -- even if it requires you to declassify sensitive material.

You have a problem with that? Take it up with George W. Bush. twitter.com/Reuters/status/114

No sorry. Autism isn’t like the market. It doesn’t “right itself”.

Devastating. 20 yrs of capacity development-front line workers to grad-level supervisors. Ppl that sit on bathroom floors to toilet train, practice walking safely on sidewalks, prevent self-injury, listen while parents cry.

Let’s shift gears for a hot second. How about the therapists being laid off. Being told they’ll have to compete with colleagues for their jobs. How about @MacLeodLisa@twitter.com shrugging this off as “re-jigging”—I’m sure all 291 of those folks feel so much better knowing the

We are losing dedicated and talented professionals. Therapists are looking in other jurisdictions where there are no shortage of jobs in ABA. Many organizations in the states offer thousands of dollars in signing bonuses and relocation assistance. Years of capacity building gone. twitter.com/mikepmoffatt/statu
