Can we support Autistic people better?

This week, the Federal Government released a draft strategy aimed at improving the lives of Australians with Autism. It comes after a 2022 inquiry found that outcomes for Autistic people in Australia were “unacceptably poor”.

So what does the strategy recommend, and how could it improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Australians? In today’s podcast, we speak to the CEO of Autism Awareness Australia to find out more.

You can read the Draft National Autism Strategy here. You’ll find the government’s feedback survey here (feedback is due by 31 May).

Hosts: Emma Gillespie and Sam Koslowski
Guest: Nicole Rogerson, CEO of Autism Awareness Australia
Audio producer: Emmeline Peterson
