If you are the parent, family member, or family friend of a child with autism who is being educated or assisted at a neighborhood school by an autism trained Teacher Assistant and autism trained Resource Teacher, as I am, please remember that these services resulted from an extraordinary promise made ... and kept .... by Liberal leader Shawn Graham who kept that commitment as Premier once his Liberal party formed the government. My son Conor, and many other autistic school children in New Brunswick, received the benefits of that promise and the UNB-CEL autism trained Teacher Assistant instruction and individual instruction program put together with the help of autism trained Resource Teachers.
Tomorrow as you cast your ballots please remember the following autism commitment made to then Autism Society NB President Lila Barry on behalf of autistic children and their families.

The fulfillment of that autism commitment has made New Brunswick a leader in educating children with autism :
