Autism Advisory Group sets priorities

Posted on 20 August 2018

The new Autism Advisory Group (AAG) will provide a strong voice on behalf of people with autism who are participating in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Minister for Social Services Dan Tehan said the Australian Government established the AAG because of its commitment to a collaborative, fact-based approach to autism and the rollout of the NDIS.

"The Autism Advisory Group includes autism experts, service providers and people with lived experience of autism," Mr Tehan said. "The Group will advise the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on autism, and how to deliver the best outcomes for adults and children."
