The Department of Social Services has engaged Australian Healthcare Associates (AHA) to evaluate the reach and uptake of the Autism Guideline. The National Guideline for the Assessment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Australia (the Guideline) was developed by Autism CRC and launched in 2018.
The Guideline represents the first national standard for the assessment and diagnosis of autism in Australia, and outlines processes for both comprehensive assessment of individual support needs and diagnostic decision-making.
The purpose of this survey is to evaluate the awareness, application and impact of the Guideline and to obtain your views on issues that may be affecting uptake of the Guideline.
AHA invites paediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, speech pathologists, nurses, occupational therapists, general practitioners and social workers that have a role or an interest in the assessment and diagnosis of autism to participate in the evaluation by completing two online surveys: the first is available now, and a follow-up survey, if you choose to participate, is to be completed in early 2022.
AHA encourages your participation whether or not you were previously aware of the Guideline.
The survey is open now and will close at 11:59pm on Tuesday 6 July 2021.
