The Disability Royal Commission made a number of findings and recommendations on disability services.
The Final Report does not include any autism specific recommendations in relation to disability services. However, it does include recommendations which may be interpreted as having particular relevance to Autistic people, and people with cognitive and intellectual disability (given the Commission’s findings). These recommendations may be of particular interest and relevance to some members of the autism community. They were informed by evidence from Autistic people and their families and supporters.
