Municipalities are getting together to recognize autism as the most common neurological disorder.

The Town of Shelburne has asked Minden Hills to pass a resolution which is calling on the government to remove the age limit for IBI therapy.

Councillor Jean Neville has a grandson with autism, and she’s very passionate about this project.

Neville says it’s criminal the government won’t support families who have children with autism.

The council resolution states the current waiting list of children for Intensive Behaviour Intervention is over 2,000 and more than 13,000 kids await Applied Behaviour Analysis.

It’s also requesting the province to allow all the children on the current waiting lists to receive the services they need.
