"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Autism Lifespan Services Survey

A team looking to improve government services for people affected by autism spectrum disorder is asking for the public's help to find out where progress is needed.

The Autism Management Advisory Team will assess current efforts to help people with autism spectrum disorder and their families. It will identify priority service gaps for children, adults and families affected by autism spectrum disorder.

The assessment includes an Autism Lifespan Services survey designed to gather information from individuals with autism spectrum disorder, their families and caregivers, and others involved in their care, support and education.

"This team is doing important work towards improving government services for those affected with autism spectrum disorder," said Education Minister Marilyn More. "I encourage anyone affected by ASD to fill out the survey."

The team will use the survey to recommend a comprehensive strategy to improve services. It expects to complete its report early in 2010.
