Training Teachers' Assistants to work with students with Pervasive Development Disorders/Autism Spectrum Disorders (PD D/ASD)
The Ministry has provided the Geneva Centre for Autism with a grant of $5 million for training Teachers' Assistants to work with students with Pervasive Developmental Disorders/Autism Spectrum Disorders (PDD/ASD).

The Geneva Centre has asked school boards to provide the name of an individual in each school board who can identify their training needs. The Geneva Centre will be contacting school board delegates later this fall.
