Take advantage of this unique
opportunity to have your voice heard by the Ontario Government on ADHD issues that
affect your family. Minister Lisa McLeod, the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community
and Social Services, recently informed the public that the Ontario Government
is open to also hearing from families of children with other disabilities
through the Autism Consultation process. ADHD has been listed as one of the
diagnoses. In the month of May 2019, the Ontario Government is providing three ways
for you to participate in this consultation process.
You can register to participate in one
Town Halls, (access the link for dates and instructions) where you can participate
live during a phone call. They are asking that you restrict your comments to 30
seconds. They are only allowing one hour for these town halls and warn that
they may not have enough time to hear everyone in the queue. Staff from the
Ministries of Children, Community and Social Services, Education and Health and
Long-Term Care will be listening in during the sessions.
Another option is participation in a
20 minute online
The third option is to write to
