Her training as a healthcare professional, experiences as a parent of two and insight as a Thorncliffe Park resident deeply inform the initiatives Munira supports. A strong advocate for better supports and services for families of children on the autism spectrum, Munira has worked with the Thorncliffe Collaborative to partner with the Geneva Centre for Autism, a relationship that has enabled parents to engage in training opportunities that are accessible and culturally sensitive. Currently, Munira coordinates a school-based paediatric clinic for Health Access Thorncliffe Park that focuses on supporting children and youth who experience challenges with learning, growth, behaviour and development. Her role allows for cross collaboration & consolidation of partnerships among the sectors of health, education and social services to provide meaningful care to families with multiple challenges who require extensive navigation across systems.
