Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

AUTISM Queens­land is call­ing on fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als liv­ing with autism across Queens­land to have their say about the sup­port ser­vices they de­serve.

The 2017 ‘Have Your Say’ Sur­vey is be­ing con­ducted by re­searchers from Autism Queens­land, The Univer­sity of Queens­land and Queens­land Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy.

Lead re­searcher Dr Jill Ash­burner from Autism Queens­land said the on­line sur­vey is de­signed to as­sess the needs, Queens­land-wide, of peo­ple of all ages liv­ing with autism, their fam­i­lies and car­ers.

“We want to hear from adults on the spec­trum, as well as par­ents and care­givers of peo­ple on the spec­trum of any age, to find out about the ser­vices that they value or need us to de­liver,” Dr Ash­burner said.

“We hope to gather de­tailed in­for­ma­tion about the ed­u­ca­tional sup­port and ser­vice needs of peo­ple on the autism spec­trum and their fam­i­lies, and to iden­tity the gaps in ser­vice pro­vi­sion.”

It will be avail­able at www.autismqld.com.au un­til Fri­day, Jan­uary 12, 2018.
