Special Needs Hearings

Kathy Brookes

A committee of B.C.'s legislature is looking for ways to improve assessment and eligibility processes for children and youth with neuro-diverse special needs -- such as autism, FASD and developmental delays -- will hold the first of eight public hearings in Terrace next month. 

Skeena MLA Ellis Ross is among the nine MLAs on the Standing Committee on Children and Youth. 

Chair Nicholas Simons says families may navigate a number of pathways, services and providers over the course of a child's journey and the committee is looking to better understand those experiences.

The hearing in Terrace will be on May 21st. 

Registration is encouraged and teleconference options are also available. 

People can also make written submissions before June 7th.
