W-FIVE : On the Brink

This weekend CTV aired a W-Five episode that focussed on the wait lists for therapy.
It was called: "On the Brink" and had some great interviews with families.

Video Clip 1: Meet families struggling to live with the financial burden of funding their own child's Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy - which can cost as much as 80,000 dollars per year for each child.

Video Clip 2: Ontario's ombudsman reports 150 complaints about therapy wait lists, in April 2008 alone. The office says it will continue to monitor the issue and may investigate in the future.
