Autism CRC is proud to announce that Autism New Zealand has become one of our Essential Participants. This new collaboration brings together 14 Essential Participants to the Autism CRC and allows us to expand our work internationally to continue making a difference to the autistic and autism communities.
Founded in the 1969 and becoming an incorporated society in 1995, Autism New Zealand provides support, training, advocacy, resources and information on autism. Autism New Zealand has 16 branches located across New Zealand and over 10,000 active members, including children, young adults and adults on the autism spectrum, their family members, caregivers, and the autism community.
The work we do at the Autism CRC is only possible thanks to the support of our participant organisations and partners. The collaborative environment within a cooperative research centre gives us the scale needed to have real transformational impact for the autistic and autism communities through our research programs.
