Immediate Attention & Action Needed Regarding Education Changes in BC 

Did you know about the changes happening with schooling in BC? 

AutismBC is committed to inclusion and supporting our community. Our members have been asking us for information about the changes happening with schooling in BC. We strive to empower and support, so in an effort to help provide accurate information we reached out to the Ministry of Education and all Members of Legislative Assembly (MLA) in BC.
