AMA Submission to the Select Committee on Autism
Many Australian’s are impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder. It is important that we support individuals and families in accessing diagnostic assessment, treatment, and support in a timely manner. Supports may be required from a broad range of sectors and it is imperative that these sectors work together. Improvements in the funding of research and to the National Disability Insurance Scheme are also likely to improve the experiences and outcomes for individuals and families impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
