Autism CRC – Supporting autistic children and their families

Autism CRC stands as a trusted, national authority on autism practices throughout all life stages. By collaborating with autistic individuals, families, experts, service providers, and authorities, Autism CRC ensures evidence-backed outcomes that address communal needs.

The need

The purpose of this project was to support practitioners and other participants in understanding and implementing the Recommendations in the National Guideline for supporting the learning, participation, and wellbeing of autistic children and their families in Australia (the Guideline). We worked collaboratively with Telethon Kids Institute and Autism CRC to produce an eLearning short course as well as an eLearning lecture and activity.

The learning solution

The short course provides an overview of key information, Guideline Recommendations and Good Practice Points from the National Guideline. It also features case studies, videos and downloadable resources to enable participants to get the most out of their learning. Immersive case studies were a key tool to help demonstrate the Guideline in clinical practice using realistic scenarios. Actual quotes from practitioners, families and the autistic community also feature throughout the short course to provide real community insights.

The eLearning lecture is a shortened version of the short course to better suit an education setting. Once the eLearning lecture has been completed, learners then complete the facilitator-led lecture activity. The lecture activity enables a deeper understanding of the Guideline through discussions, reflections and activities.

The outcome

Autism CRC described the final product as the ‘Gold standard’ for learning at Autism CRC. We continue to work with Telethon Kids Institute and Autism CRC on other projects and continue to go above and beyond the expectations of our clients!


This project spanned over a 100-day period.
