Aspergers Victoria has advocated for our community needs for many years with strong results. Our community need is often hidden from view by governments and relevant organisations. At AV we work to draw attention to the very specific needs of our Aspergers Autistics and other similar neurodiverse profiles in our community. 

Current advocacy:

Submission to the Inquiry into School Refusal (2023)
The increasing numbers of school refusal cases has led to an Inquiry into whether COVID is the main cause or what else is contributing to this.
AV's submission to the enquiry

Submission to the Department for Education & Training with VCAA (2021)
Victoria's senior secondary curriculum is being reformed. Under the changes, there would be an integrated VCE with a vocational specialist scheme (in place of VCAL) and a new Foundation Pathways Certificate for students who are not ready to complete VCE. We are working with partners and the Victorian Government to ensure the changes are not to the detriment of our community.
