Have your say on the future of autism research

Have your say on the future of autism research
Today we call on autistic Australians, families, carers, and the broader autism community to have their say on the future of autism research priorities. Individuals and organisations involved in providing services and supports, as well as managing policy that affect autistic people and the autism community are also asked to contribute.

The outcome of this community consultation process will help guide the future focus of autism research activities and research funding in Australia.

The Australian Autism Research Council (AARC) includes representatives of the autistic and broader autism communities, as well as service providers, health and education professionals, government program managers and policy makers, and researchers. The AARC has put together a draft set of autism research priorities.

We are keen for everyone to be involved in this process, including those who may not have had similar opportunities to have their say in the past. Some of the diverse groups we’d like to hear from are people using assistive technology to communicate, those living in rural and remote areas and those with intellectual disabilities.

The AARC has developed a quick and clear Easy Read version of the survey and supporting consultation paper which includes pictures and larger text. An online survey and submissions process is now open.
