Autism CRC welcomes the recent funding commitment to support the development of a National Autism Strategy, underpinned by a national research agenda and evidence-based practice. The ALP has committed $1M to its development in addition to funding to enable Autism CRC to support the strategy development while continuing other activities.
We look forward to working with the new government and all stakeholders in developing a national strategy, and continuing to play a leading role in the national coordination of research and its application in evidence-based best practice. Over the past decade, Autism CRC has become Australia’s independent national source of evidence for best practice in relation to autism across the lifespan. Through our Cooperative Research Centres Program, Autism CRC has delivered national practice standards and guidance, supports and capacity-building resources for individuals, professionals and communities – all informed by evidence.
