Research and Development
Our dynamic Research and Development team promotes evidence-informed, high quality practice at Autism Queensland. Reviews of current evidence inform our services, and research is conducted that aims to inform future directions of programs for autistic children and adults.
The AQ Research Team is led by Dr Jill Ashburner.
Regular supervision of our education and therapy professionals by lead staff (Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Psychology and Teaching) ensures they have a sound understanding of evidence-informed practice and opportunities to reflect on practice and explore relevant intervention options.

Autism Queensland is involved in a number of research programs around the education of autistic students, sensory processing differences, practices and professional development needs of clinicians supporting autistic people; the development and evaluation of goal setting tools, and the evaluation of services for autistic adolescents and adults, and telepractice.
