There's still time to have your say

There’s still time to have your say in the future of autism research priorities by completing a short 10 minute online survey as an individual, or compiling a submission on behalf of your organisation or service.

The Australian Autism Research Council (AARC) is looking for feedback from:
  • autistic people
  • families and carers
  • researchers
  • service providers (including health, justice, education, employment, government, disability, built environment and other services that support the autistic community).
Consultation closes on 30 June 2019.

To view the Draft Research Priorities for Consultation 2019, Terms of Reference, survey and submissions process follow the link below.

Calling diagnosticians

Are you currently involved in the assessment and diagnosis of autism in Australia?

If so, Telethon Kids Institute and University of Western Australia are asking for your participation in a survey that aims to understand your current assessment and diagnostic practices.

This survey can take approximately 20-30 minutes for most professionals, and a maximum of 50 minutes (depending on the breadth of the assessment types that you offer and the number of optional questions you choose to answer).

Creating inclusive spaces

Autism CRC has produced guidelines and checklists to support the creation of inclusive environments at events such as workshops, conferences and conventions.

An inclusive environment is one that caters for the needs, desires and preferences of all attendees, and reduces anxiety as much as possible. Creating a physical and psychological environment that supports and promotes optimal participation, engagement, comfort and learning will also help in retaining a higher number of participants.
