Australian Autism Educational Needs Analysis

What are the needs of schools, parents and students on the autism spectrum?

The Autism CRC Australian Autism Educational Needs Analysis used a nationwide survey to obtain information about the educational needs of students on the autism spectrum (5-18 years) from four key stakeholder groups including educators, specialists, parents and students on the spectrum (11-18 years).

The aim of the survey was for key participants to identify, from their perspective, the educational needs of students on the spectrum (5-18 years) within school settings.

The Australia wide online survey allowed for the collection of a range of quantitative and qualitative data with a series of closed and open ended questions. The survey was then followed up with the collection of more in-depth qualitative data from interviews with individuals within the various stakeholder groups.
