Autism/Takiwātanga: The Pathway to Diagnosis and Supports in New Zealand
We are delighted to share that the Autism CRC have officially released full reports of our research project investigating autism diagnostic processes and post-diagnostic supports in New Zealand. It certainly has been a while since we started this project and shared initial results, so it’s very exciting to now be able to share the full research findings.
Key recommendations from the research focus on: (1) earlier identification of autism, (2) implementation of recommendations from the NZ ASD Guideline, and (3) access to post-diagnostic supports. We will keep you updated with our progress as we continue working towards these goals.
The Autism CRC release, including full reports can be found here.
