Determining the workforce development needs of New Zealand’s autism workforce

This information gathering report describes the current learning and development activities that are in place across New Zealand for the workforce supporting children and adults with autism through funding from Disability Support Services.

Workforce analysis starts with understanding the workforce that is in place to support, and the context in which supports are provided. This report describes in broad terms the size and composition of the population affected by autism and the support services being used.

The report outlines the results of an information-gathering exercise undertaken in November 2015.
