Using total population data to produce policy-relevant evidence to increase access to services for Aboriginal children with intellectual disability / autism spectrum disorder in Western Australia

Chief Investigator: Dr Alison Gibberd

This project will use total population data from Western Australia to understand why Aboriginal children with developmental disability are less likely to receive disability services prior to school than non-Aboriginal children. The project also aims to understand the current relationship between Aboriginal families affected by developmental disability and the child protection system.
