About the Knowledge Base

Visitors to the Autism Ontario Knowledge Base can search articles by using the list of categories in the left margin or by typing in a topic of their choice. The primary goal of this project is to develop and make accessible through an on-line, searchable database, a series of brief, easy-to-understand documents that are relevant to the lives of youth and adults on the autism spectrum and their families.  

Contribute to the Autism Ontario Knowledge Base: Individuals and organizations are invited to submit articles to be considered for inclusion in the on-line library. Articles can be submitted in an abstract or full article format, in either official language. Topics should be relevant to library users across Canada and beyond. Please note that submission of an article infers that the author (s) provides permission for the material to be translated. For inquiries about the submission process, please send an email to info@autismontario.com.  

Online and Download PDFs: The documents, which can be read online or printed in PDF format, address a variety of topics and most are available in both official languages, therefore benefiting Anglophone and Francophone families/caregivers, service providers, educators and individuals with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), across Canada.

Article Process: In order to ensure relevance, practicality and accuracy of material, the development of this online library included the following process:

  •  Topics were suggested by individuals with ASD, family members and a variety of professionals;
  •  Articles were written by individuals with ASD, siblings and other family members, professionals and researchers from the field of ASD;
  • Family members and content experts reviewed final documents prior to posting.
