Forum topic

discrimination in the Justice System

I am trying to consider how I might estimate the costs of the breaches of recognizance, breaches of probation and failure to attend charges that my often not lucid clients are charged with as a result of the lack of accommodation for the cognitive perceptual impairments.

My clients are often not "orientated in time and space". As a result they miss many appointments. As a result they also often go to the emergency ward when they can't figure out how to handle an issue in their lives

The Drummond report gave us a costing outline for the hospital Emergency room visits. It is possible to calculate  the cost of each individuals use of healthcare services by tracking an OHIP number.
