These autistic children require one to one instruction by persons trained in autism. That usually means the Teacher's Assistant that many require for safety and for learning assistance. The Autism Intervention Training program offered by the UNB-CEL is endorsed by the Autism Society New
I ask the leaders of the Conservative, Liberal and NDP parties if they will provide a solid commitment to train an additional 400-500 TA's at the UNB-CEL Autism Intervention Training course so that autistic children in NB can receive a real education. Please refrain from statements of sympathy for our children's situation or vague, meaningless election promises. I ask you to provide this specific commitment as a binding commitment.
