Autism Services

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (14:44): My questions to the parliamentary secretary and Assistant Minister for Autism regarding concessions are:

1. What concessions are available to fund the expensive costs of autism diagnosis and early intervention services in lower socio-economic areas?

2. What is the Department for Education's role in identifying where there is a need for these services?

3. What is the current wait time for this important diagnosis service?

The Hon. E.S. BOURKE (14:45): Thank you for your questions. They are questions that are obviously required to be answered by the education minister.
