HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Based on the many hundreds of calls we receive annually from young people with special needs and their families frustrated with the gaps and barriers they encounter in the service system, we felt the time was right to bring their voices directly into a conversation with government, decision makers, and service providers. We wanted to create a focused engagement process that would enable young people to share their lived experiences and ideas about what changes are needed in the system to ensure they receive the care and support they require to maintain their health, thrive, and live their lives the way they choose.
