So, I’ve already put up the link to the CAPP survey (reminder: closes July 15th); we also have a written submission form for adult autistics (referred to as “self-advocates” in the documentation). The details are as follows:
We are interested in learning about your views on the importance of a national partnership model in addressing the critical issues facing individuals with autism, their families and those working in the field. We envision CAP bringing together researchers, service providers, and decision-makers in collaboration with people with autism and their families to address the complex issues the autism community faces today.
Specifically, we are looking for your input to the following questions:
- As a person on the spectrum, what are the big issues that you believe need to be solved?
- As we design the CAP model, what suggestions do you have for creating a strong national partnership?
- How do you think CAP could make a difference to you, your family and your community?
- If you are aware of other collaborative models you think we should explore, please tell us about them.
Once you have composed your responses to these questions, please visit http://www.capproject.ca/index.php/en/written-submission-self-advocates to submit your answers in a fillable PDF.
All information is confidential. The information we collect will provide us with an understanding of the current autism landscape in Canada and what is required to have a successful national partnership model in this country.
If you have additional comments, questions, or information that you would like to share with us, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for fillable PDF submissions is Saturday, July 30th.
Please, please, if you’re an autistic Canadian, please fill this out. We’ve got a large number of responses to the survey so far, but only approximately 4% of them are from actual autistics. The more information we get from autistics, the better our idea of what the situations around Canada are.
