When it comes to accessing support in education for children with autism there are no clear and consistent pathways across the country.

The amount of support a family receives depends on the severity of the needs of the child, the decile rating of the school, the availability of services and specialists, and the attitudes and priorities of the school.

Altogether Autism researcher, Rebecca Armstrong, writes about the types of learning supports available through schools and the Ministry of Education in Altogether Autism Journal Issue One, 2018.
