Ontario auditor general says autism program needs to be re-evaluated.
In her annual report released Tuesday, Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk highlighted that although the province has quadrupled autism funding over the last decade, there are still more children waiting for government-funded services than there are children receiving them.
“We think they need to re-evaluate the program,” said Lysyk. “There is research saying that for Intensive Behaviour Intervention treatment (IBI), children should be getting the treatment younger than they’re getting it in Ontario.”
Currently, many Ontario children with autism do not start IBI until almost age seven. Research has shown that children who start the treatment before age four have better results than those who start later.
Parents find lack of access frustrating
Diane Goedecke, a mother of a 17-year-old autistic son in Waterloo, says part of the problem is that many children get placed in the system when they actually do not need to be in it.
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have developed a new screening tool to facilitate the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder in adults. The test is presented in the scientific journal Molecular Autism and is unique in that researchers have, as part of their evaluation, compared the group diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder with psychiatric patients.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a collective term that embraces autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. The disorder causes major problems in communicating and interacting with other people, and can lead to compulsive routines and interests. In adults, distinguishing Autism Spectrum Disorder from other psychiatric conditions can be a problem, as their symptoms often overlap or are similar to those in schizophrenia, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or severe personality disorders.
The screening methods used today for making a correct diagnosis are time-consuming and require considerable expertise. Research specialists at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience have, under the leadership of Dr Susanne Bejerot, refined and simplified an existing American test, RAADS-R (Ritvo Autism and Asperger Diagnostic Scale-Revised). The new test is a questionnaire with 14 self-screening questions. It is therefore known as RAADS-14 Screen. The scale includes three sub-scales that measure mentalisation difficulties, social anxiety and sensory oversensitivity — all common symptoms in autism. The answers are categorised on the basis of whether the symptoms appeared in childhood or developed later in life.
A 54-year-old Mississauga woman has pleaded guilty to killing her teenage autistic son.
Seow Cheng Sim recently pleaded guilty to manslaughter in Brampton court before Superior Court Justice Bruce Durno.
The judge sentenced her to 10 years in jail, but, because she was given extra credit for the four years she spent in pre-sentence custody, Sim will serve two more years in prison.
The plea means Sim admits to killing her son, but didn’t intend to do it.
She was initially charged with first-degree murder in the strangulation death of her son, 15-year-old St. Marcellinus Secondary School student Tony Khor.
Court heard the killing occurred sometime between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning Oct. 24-25, 2009.
Raising a child with autism is not easy, and the challenges that arise during the teen years are well documented. Continuing our series on autism and females we look at the issues surrounding adolescence. Changing bodies, hormone levels, and new social expectations are hurdles many typically-developing children struggle with, and for children with autism, they can be quite intense.
For parents of girls with autism, the challenge is even greater. Since autism is a disorder that primarily affects boys, most of the research and resources are targeted towards males. Girls, however, must deal with different physical and social expectations during the teen years, and parents report there are few resources available to help.
Rachel Norton, blogger and parent of a daughter with autism, says,
“Females are biologically and socially expected to be nurturing, intuitive, and empathetic, and yet autism is primarily a social-emotional disorder that profoundly affects relationships and social behavior. For girls, the collision between autistic characteristics and social expectations can be especially difficult – and almost insurmountable during the teen years”
Imagine you’re in a foreign country and you’re hungry and you’re trying to order food at a restaurant. You can’t speak the language and you’re getting frustrated and so is your waiter.
This is like the daily struggle of an autistic child in his or her interaction with the world.
“It’s like living in a world where no one understands or can’t communicate with you. Like if you’re scared or hungry these autistic children act out in abnormal ways because they can’t express their feelings,” University graduate student Austin Castleberry, said.
Castleberry works at the Treatment and Learning Center for Children with Autism in Tyler, which provides one-on-one intensive treatment for children with Autism.
“Our goal here is to transition these kids from needing our help to get into a school system and to give them a better chance at success in the future,” Castleberry said.
Autism or autism spectrum disorders is a developmental disorder that causes problems with social interactions and communication. One out of 88 children have Autism according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Typically, children with Autism are socially inadequate. They have trouble interacting with peers,” Castleberry said.

A Bray-sur-Somme : le foyer d’accueil médicalisé est placé sous la tutelle de la Préfecture. Elle a relevé des dysfonctionnements menaçant la santé et la sécurité des résidents. Mauvaise surprise pour une structure qui fonctionne depuis à peine un an.
Le préfet de la Somme a pris une décision rare : le Foyer d’accueil médicalisé de Bray-sur-Somme est placé sous tutelle. Il accueille 24 adultes atteints d’autisme ou de troubles envahissants du développement. La préfecture a relevé des “dysfonctionnements pouvant compromettre la santé et la sécurité des résidents”. Un administrateur provisoire a été nommé hier soir et le préfet a prononcé le gel temporaire des admissions.
