Auton, Autism and Applying Precedents. Law Matters.
Howard, J. Paul R.
Education Canada, v43 n1 p40-42 Win 2003
In British Columbia the state was found liable for discrimination by refusing to fund therapy treatment for autistic children under its medicare system. Although the judges expressly disavowed the education context from their consideration, there will likely be attempts to apply the ruling to special education situations since therapy can be considered a form of education.
