SPRC has been contracted by the Australian Government Department of Social Services to coordinate the research activities of the six Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centres (ASELCCs) in South Western Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, North West Tasmania, Melbourne, and Perth. Under their funding agreements, each is required to undertake research on early interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder and to develop best practice guidelines. A Child and Family Outcomes Strategy has been developed to coordinate the research undertaken across the six sites. SPRC is working with the research teams at each ASELCC to facilitate this process and assist them with developing and maintaining a research plan for the remainder of their funding agreements.
