Independent national source of evidence for best practice

Autism CRC is the independent national source of evidence for best practice in relation to autism across the lifespan and the spectrum.

We provide the national capacity to develop and deliver evidence-based outcomes through our unique collaboration with autistic people, families, professionals, services providers, researchers, and government. Together, we are addressing agreed needs and co-producing outputs with these stakeholders for the benefit of the community.

Autism CRC was established in 2013 as the world’s first national, cooperative research effort focused on autism under the Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program. We receive funding from a number of sources, including the Commonwealth Government. Autism CRC is no longer part of, or associated with, the CRC Program.
