It is an exciting time for the autism community, from autistic people to caregivers and advocates. As shared recently, in the autism enabling masterplan forum, more than 500 individuals and professionals contributed to the masterplan with the hopes of better supporting autistic people. In this masterplan, directional roadmaps were created helping autism service providers develop services for those who are autistic, ensuring a quality of life.
This consists of 14 pathways which cover the early years to adulthood, with a focus on living, learning, and working. This plan focuses six high-priority areas which leads to the construction of 14 recommendations. The six areas are: quality assurance for autism services, planning for life, learning for life, employment, residential living and planning for life after the death of caregivers.
