WA Register for Autism Spectrum Disorders

Information

The WA Register for Autism Spectrum Disorders is the first register of its kind in Australia. The Register is ongoing and since 1999 it has collected data on more than 5,000 individuals.

The aim of the WA Register for Autism Spectrum Disorders is to monitor diagnostic trends of Autism Spectrum Disorders. These disorders develop in young children and have long-term impact in areas of social interaction, communication and behaviour.

Some of the uses of the WA Autism Register include:

  • Research (using its own data, and for linking interested families with current projects)
  • Understanding characteristics that are shared across everyone with a diagnosis
  • Help in planning for appropriate services, including health, education and disability
