The Disability Royal Commission commenced in 2019. It has received almost 6,500 submissions, more than 700 responses to issues papers and held more than 1,500 hearings. Through this process, it has heard from many Autistic people on a range of issues and this evidence has informed some of its early findings and recommendations.
The Disability Royal Commission has now finished receiving submissions. It will hold its final public hearing in February 2023. It will continue to hold private hearings throughout the year, however expressions of interest to attend a private hearing have now closed. The Disability Royal Commission will provide its final report to the Australian Government in September 2023.
