Have your say on the draft National Autism Strategy

2 April 2024National Autism Strategy. Help shape the change.

The draft National Autism Strategy (Strategy) is available for public feedback until 3:00pm 31 May 2024.

Developed as part of a co-design process with the National Autism Strategy Oversight Council along with the feedback from more than 2000 people, the draft Strategy includes a vision, guiding principles, outcome areas and commitments to guide the Australian Government’s efforts.

The Strategy will be for all Autistic Australians. It will cover key areas including access to services, healthcare, education, and employment. It will help guide a more coordinated, national approach supporting autistic people at each stage of life.

Underneath the Strategy there will be action plans, an evaluation framework and a plan for how we will continue to involve Autistic people and the autism community as we put the Strategy into action. 

The draft Strategy will be refined further following the current round of consultation. The final Strategy is expected to be released by the end of 2024.
