IBI in Ontario Schools-Crowd Funding Initiative
- April 13, 2016

Recently we have been contacted by many regarding the Ontario autism program changes. We have another case already ongoing at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. Through this case, we hope to set a precedent that students should be able to get IBI/ABA provided in schools as a form of accommodation. This would mean that eligible children would receive IBI/ABA through provincial funding and when they reach school age would have IBI/ABA provided to the intensity level they need in the school setting. This lead case could have huge implications to the way IBI/ABA is delivered in Ontario.
This case relates to earlier inquiries because rather than rely on waitlists and eligibility criteria to receive provincial funding through the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, your child would receive the IBI/ABA support needed through the school system. If successful, this case would set a precedent that IBI/ABA should be provided in the school setting.
We have launched a crowd funding website to help finance this case. You can read more about the case and get to know Jack and his parents as well.
Please share this as widely as possible and donate what you can. The family is shouldering the burden in order to bring this case forward and would be grateful for any support you can offer.
