Autism CRC was formed in 2013 to manage the Cooperative Research Centre for Living with Autism, a program funded by the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and Participants in the Centre. This world first national program has a term of 8 years to June 2021, and has three major areas of research focus:

  • The Early Years: Delivering earlier, accurate diagnosis, thus facilitating life‐long benefits through access to appropriate early intervention;
  • The School Years: Delivering better educational outcomes through improved learning and teaching approaches in schools; and
  • The Adult Years: Delivering improved employment, further education and health and wellbeing outcomes for adults on the spectrum as they participate in society.

Autism CRC is moving into the second phase of its life, building the capacity, strategic partnering and additional funding arrangements for a sustained operation that undertakes major research and translation programs.
