We were shocked and saddened to see the abusive treatment of autistic children on the Four Corners exposé – Careless: How the NDIS fails to protect our most vulnerable (25/09/23).
Autism SA is a member of the Australian Advisory Board on Autism, which has released a position statement about the story that you can read here.
At Autism SA we use and promote neuro-diversity affirming practices that focus on the strengths of each individual. Every autistic person should feel safe, supported and respected when receiving supports and services. We hope the NDIS will be improved to create a safer, higher quality, and more equitable system for Australians with disability.
