Research into education and autism is a vibrant and active area in Australia and internationally. This provides a constant stream of new information for schools and families to consider.
The Autism Hub regularly reviews new research reports and publications, and shares relevant findings with schools and families.
We work closely with school communities, families and key autism stakeholders to share practical and useable information to support the educational outcomes of students with autism. Hear from our researchers or listen to the experts in our short video series.
This evidence-informed information aims to help teachers and schools to actively include, retain and engage students with autism, as well as supporting family roles or activities for young people outside of school.
The following resources were researched and developed by Griffith University in collaboration with the Autism Hub, through the Department of Education, Education Horizon research grant scheme:
