MetadataShow full item record
The present study aimed to examine the availability, accessibility, and effectiveness of services for adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Ontario, as perceived by parents and professionals in the field. Attendees at a 2008 Autism Ontario conference (N = 175) responded to a survey designed by the organization and rated each of these aspects for 11 specific services. Data analyses revealed a disparity in participants’ views of service availability among respondents from the Central region, and differences in views of accessibility and effectiveness among those in Southern Ontario. Possible explanations for these trends are discussed.
