Government Lobbying

Through our lobbying and advocacy efforts, Action in Autism galvanised the Department of Education KZN to transform 13 schools to cater for learners with autism spectrum disorder. Historically there was no school that catered solely for people with autism. Using government policy White Paper 6 on Inclusive Education (2001) and The South African Schools Act, Action in Autism has fast tracked the delivery of education to people with autism.

In 2010 we co-hosted an Autism Indaba with the Department of Education KZN – through this initiative all 72 Special needs schools will be transformed to cater for people with autism by 2014.
