Positive Partnerships

For: 

The Australian Government is committed to supporting children and young people on the autism spectrum, their parents, carers, teachers and other education professionals.

Since 2008, the Government has funded the Positive Partnerships program which provides:

  • professional development for teachers, principals and other school staff to build their understanding, skills and expertise in working with children and young people on the autism spectrum
  • workshops and information sessions for parents and carers of school-age children and young people on the autism spectrum
  • a website providing online learning modules and other resources, including
    • a comprehensive range of resources, in six languages, for parents and carers from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds
    • resources developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The Positive Partnerships program is being implemented by Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect).
