I have recently returned from New York where I attended the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) Strategic Planning Meeting as vice-President and member of the INSAR Board. Our focus is ensuring this society becomes more global, as only 5% of the worlds autistic people live in first world, high income, high resource nations! Last week, I spent a day in Canberra with our La Trobe Children’s Centre Manager (Kristy Capes) and Margot Prior Autism Intervention Centre Clinical Manager (Carolyne Jones), together with representatives from each of the national Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centres (ASELCCs). The meeting, hosted by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and the NDIA, focused on how the good work undertaken at the six ASELCCs can be supported following transition into the NDIS, particularly capacity building and research post June 2020 (when block funding from DSS ceases). You can see first had evidence of this work in the video provided below where Dr Hudry and Ms Upson discuss how children with autism can be supported to thrive in childcare. Our collective aim at the ASELCCs is to continue to disseminate this good work into the wider community so that increasing numbers of children with autism and their families can benefit from access to evidence-based early intervention and support.
