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 Autism Stakeholder Working Group developed two surveys – one for parents/caregivers of children with ASD, and one for service providers. The surveys gathered information from parents/caregivers about the service needs of their children and information from service providers about current services offered, as well as input to help inform the design of the Autism individualized funding program.

The survey was posted on Saskatchewan.ca July 6-26, 2017. A total of 244 parents/caregivers representing 290 children and 175 service providers completed the surveys. We would like to thank the public and stakeholders who provided input into the design of the Autism Spectrum Disorder Individualized Funding Model. You can download and read a summary of the survey results and thematic analysis of narrative survey comments and written submissions.

The ASD Individualized Funding Model being developed is informed by the survey results and the work of the Stakeholder Working Group.

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.
