A daycare in Montreal is worried about what budget cuts will do for children with autism.
The CPE Au Petit Talon has a special program for children with autism and similar conditions that was developed in conjunction with Jean Talon hospital.
On Wednesday morning daycare managers said they would have to eliminate the program in the face of budget cuts.
The provincial government has cut $120 million from daycare budgets across the province for the 2105-16 fiscal year.
