The AFSA committee has updated its three Agenda Statements covering Autism Issues 2021-23, Education Issues 2021-23 and NDIS Issues 2021-23. You can download a copy of each agenda – the AFSA committee uses these documents to inform government, services and the community of our concerns and lived experiences as parents/carers of family members with autism, ASD and complex needs.  You can reference items from these documents – but please acknowledge AFSA as the source.
