Mr. Speaker, April 2 marked World Autism Awareness Day.
Autism continues to be a major health crisis in Canada and across the world. Through the raising of awareness, more resources have been dedicated towards research, treatment, and diagnoses.
However, even with the added awareness and resources toward autism, I have met many families that are struggling to access resources and help for their children with autism.
Nina Jain, a mother of an autistic child, faced this same challenge and took it upon herself to create an online resource, which can be found at able2learn.com. It has over 30,000 pages of material and over 900 products that provide free inclusive educational material, with a special focus on autism and learning disabilities for anyone.
I would like to commend her hard work and dedication on this important day.
