L’autisme au Québec (2004-2014) : politiques, mythes et pratiques

Abstract : The example of autism has been chosen to approach the question of discrepancies between official reports describing an integrated care system in Quebec and observations in the field. The analysis of official reports, ethnographic observations in a Montreal hospital, and interviews with professionals, families and representatives from parent associations evidence major changes occurring in the years following 2000, taking the form of efforts to offer better services to the families concerned and their autistic children. However, less than ten years later, changes in management, staff and objectives resulted in a decrease in the offer of services. This article sets out to analyse the policies and practices in autism in the context of reforms in the Quebec health system.
