meanwhile, right here

Today’s online finds: Inspirational, educational and very close to home. I grew up with Carly, and her family’s story needs to be heard. Her voice has been strong, loud and clear and now it’s our turn to do our part. Please Share. Support. Donate. Write. Speak up.

     

Dear X

I’m writing in support of families who have children impacted by Autism and whose children are faced with a mental health or behavioural crisis related to their diagnosis. The province of Nova Scotia must step up to the table and provide the supports necessary for these complex cases involving children in crisis.

Namely, I am insisting the government:

1. Ensure families with children in crisis have access to necessary resources to maintain the safety of their home (funded in-home support);
2. Ensure coordination between the departments of community services, health, and education to develop a shared plan of support for children who are in crisis;
3. To continue publicly funded, evidence-based interventions for children affected by Autism past the age of six.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best,
