Liberal majority defeats PC motion to restore IBI therapy for kids over five

An opposition motion calling on the Ontario government to restore funding for Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) therapy for children over the age of 5 was defeated in the Legislature Tuesday.

Introduced by the Progressive Conservatives and supported by the New Democrats, the motion was spoken to by nine PC members, among them Dufferin-Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones, who read to the House a letter a Dufferin mother had written to Premier Kathleen Wynne.

The writer said she knew from experience what life is like for parents of autistic children “now and what it will look like in the future.
