Senate Select Committee on Autism inquiry

CYDA policy submission.

As well as the usual challenges students often face in their school lives and transitions out of school, students with disability, including autistic students, face a range of additional barriers.

Students with disability are also significantly more likely to face restrictive practices such as restraint and seclusion.
