We are proud to announce the opening of the annual Autism CRC Awards for Achievement in Autism Spectrum Research. These awards recognise and celebrate research and development initiatives that exemplify the Autism CRC’s vision, mission and values.
The awards are open to all organisations and researchers undertaking quality research projects in the area of autism, regardless of affiliation with Autism CRC. In particular, they recognise achievements in inclusive research practice and the translation of autism research into practice, products, policy and programs that benefit the autistic and broader autism communities.
In the category of Inclusive Research Practice, last year’s winning project involved the development of a goal setting tool that enables autistic adolescents and adults to develop and prioritise their goals in areas including social participation, self-care, study, employment, communication and financial management. The National Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Australia received the Research Translation category award in recognition of its outstanding translation of a comprehensive evidence-based review and community consultative research.
This year’s nominations close on Tuesday 1 October 2019 and winners will be publicly announced on 4 November 2019. To find out more about this year’s award categories, selection criteria and how to enter, follow the link below.
