Support for Autistic Students in WA Schools

The survey is now CLOSED and we are working on our submission.  Thank you to everyone who responded. 

A background of three circular block colours - blue, teal and purple. In the top left corner is the SWAN logo, and on the right hand side is a picture of a teenaged student with black afro hair, wearing a light blue button up shirt over a green long sleeved shirt. They are holding a pencil in their hand, and their head resting on that hand while reading schoolwork at their desk. Below that is an image of two young kids, one with short brown hair and a red check shirt, the other with long pale blonde hair and a white shirt. They are working on a worksheet together. To the left is white text reading 'Support for autistic students in WA schools, and below that is a blue button labelled 'take survey' and a white cartoon hand pointing to the button.


The Western Australian Government is holding an Inquiry into support for autistic children and young people in WA schools.  SWAN are writing a submission to this Government inquiry, which is due on the 13th July 2023.  We want to tell them what is working and what isn’t.

We need your help. Can you please fill in the survey and tell us about your experiences with support for autistic students in WA.

We want to hear from parents, carers, guardians, autistic students, school staff, therapists and other family members about your experience.  If you have more than one role, we would love to hear your responses to this survey for each role, but you would need to respond on a different device for each role (This is the only way SurveyMonkey can do this, unfortunately).

The survey is anonymous.  You don’t need to give your personal details.

If you would like to talk about this with one of the SWAN team, or would like support, please contact us by emailing or phone 0499 819 038.

Thank you for your help.
