Doug Ford’s gov’t announces funding for in-class help for artistic kids.  They will receive “per pupil” funding of $12,300...   

This is the exact amount of current per pupil funding that schools get now.   So the Ford gov’t just announced that autistic kids will receive the same funding at school as kids without autism. 

Wow....   talk about trying to pull the wool over people's eyes!
But here's the thing: This was not new money.

The $12,300 figure was projected back in August as the average per-pupil funding available for the 2018-2019 school year. This is up only slightly from the previous year, when the per-pupil figure was $12,100. But the increase had already happened — Thompson's "announcement" was an announcement of the status quo. The same funds.
