Resource – A National Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder in Australia

Developed and published by Autism CRC with the financial support of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), the Guideline aims to create greater consistency in diagnostic practices across the country to ensure individuals on the autism spectrum and their families can receive the optimal clinical care.

The Guideline also emphasises the importance of listening to individuals and their families about the impact of the behaviours on family life. The community has been requesting a national and consistent guideline for autism assessment and diagnosis for many years, and we are pleased to release a guideline that responds to this need. The guideline recommendations were approved by Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council.
