Our Member of Parliament, Glenn Thibeault is well known for supporting our community and once again he has stepped up to the plate and is aiming the spotlight on the importance of Autism awareness. The calendar that he distributes has a personal message that details his tabling of a bill - bill C-360, an Act to Amend the Canadian Health Act (Autism Spectrum Disorder). If passed, this bill would ensure that the cost of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) are covered by the health care insurance plan of every province. To support this, his calendar provides facts about autism to dispel myths and has also included artwork on each page that was created by the students of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board.|
Thank you Mr. Thibeault for championing such a great cause and for once again supporting our board!
