2019-20 Annual Report achievement highlights
Autism CRC’s 2019-20 Annual Report is now available. We approached the 2019-20 year with a focus on two overarching objectives: completing our current program with an emphasis on the translation and utilisation of our project outputs for impact in our user community; and the transition of our assets and activities to a legacy operation beyond the CRC term.
Despite the challenges of 2020, the efforts of all our research and end-user Participants in our national collaboration can only be lauded as we continue to deliver quality project outputs resulting in significant impact upon autism-related practice and policy. These are building the capacity of individuals, the service sector and the community across Australia and across the lifespan – from early childhood through the school years and into adult life.
As you read through the Annual Report, you will learn of many more highlights and impacts from our work. These are only achievable through a co-ordinated national approach to defining and addressing needs, involving all stakeholders. That collaborative capacity is of itself an important national asset. Combined with the other assets generated through the course of the past seven years – major research assets and evidence-based frameworks and resources for research, policy and practice – we have collectively formed the national independent reference body for autism-related best practice.
Thanks to all those who have contributed to our activities and outcomes. It is only through the collaborative efforts of all that so much has been achieved and value created in order that autistic people might be empowered to use their diverse strengths and interests.
