AFSA National Autism Strategy

A group from the AFSA committee provided input to the draft National Autism Strategy (NAS) in October 2023, emphasizing that those with Severe and Profound Autism need to be central to the strategy. It was strongly recommended that the NAS needs to reflect a very broad and balanced representation of realities from the very different worlds that the Autism spectrum covers. This input was in line with the Senate Committee’s report on Autism (2022)2, which called for the development of a national strategy. The report identified a divergence in views, most apparent between autistic self-advocates and parents of SPA family members, who are heavily or completely reliant on parent or carer advocacy.
