Autism Spectrum Disorder Individualized Funding Survey

In 2016, the Government of Saskatchewan committed to implementing an Individualized Funding Program for parents and/or caregivers of children living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  This program supports the Saskatchewan Disability Strategy which is a 10-year comprehensive Strategy that sets out the vision to make Saskatchewan a more welcoming, inclusive, and accessible province for people who experience disability.

An Autism Stakeholder Working Group has been brought together to assist government in creating a new model for individualized funding. The working group is now seeking feedback from parents/caregivers of children with ASD, as well as service providers.

Below you will find ways to provide feedback on your experience. There are options to participate online as well as through a paper survey or written submission.

Online Survey

The links below will launch a short online survey that should take less than 10 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of comments you choose to add.

What is Individualized Funding?

Individualized funding will provide parents with funding to purchase services that best suit their child’s individual needs. This will give parents the flexibility and freedom to choose from a range of interventions that they think will most benefit their child.

More about the Autism Stakeholder Working Group

As part of the election commitment to implement an Individualized Funding program, an Autism Stakeholder Working Group has been brought together to provide recommendations to government on the Autism Individualized Funding Model.

Participants in the Working Group have been chosen from across Saskatchewan to share their experiences raising a child with ASD, and/or providing services for families impacted by ASD.
