National Autism Strategy National Consultations

The Australian Government is developing a National Autism Strategy with the Autistic community, their families and carers, autism and disability sector and professionals and researchers.

The Strategy will be a whole-of-life plan for Autistic Australians of all ages – and not just those eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
