Ford gov reduced max funding for each child, but there were 8400 kids under the program with a 23,000 waitlist.  So they're giving less to each parent, but trying to make sure every child is funded by the program.  Who knows if that will work.

Parents who currently receive funding are rightfully upset.  Parents with kids on the waitlist might be happier, but i guess most parents want the full funding given to every child.  Total funding isn't being reduced, apparently, from what the gov has said.

Parents on the waiting list won't be happier to have the same funding they already have, and NO chance of funding for autistic kids' special programs at all.

Every child gets the standard  per pupil amount.
Some autistic students were previously alloted additional funding.
That's been cut.
Other autistic students were on a waiting list for that additional funding.
Now they won't ever get it.
There is no waiting list anymore because there is no additional funding for programs for autistic kids.

Just the same province wide per pupil funding rate.
