I have learned that in B.C., families with autistic children under the age of six are eligible to receive support program funding up to $22,000 per year. Autistic youth between the ages of six and 18 are eligible for up to $6,000 per year, in addition to the $18,300 per-pupil funding provided through school boards. The province currently provides more than $165 million in annual funding for programs and services that support 7,500 children and youth with autism.
