Summary

"The paper consists of two reports on post-diagnosis support for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The first report focuses on younger children, and the second on older children. The reports are based on literature reviews addressing the experiences of diagnosis, treatment and support for families with children who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. They focus on the impact of Autism Spectrum Disorder on families and on their perceptions of the benefits of the treatment received and support models provided, as well as intervention studies and programs that assist transitions from school. The reports are also based on interviews with parents and Autism Spectrum Disorder service providers across Australia."--FaHCSIA website.
