As part of the Positive Partnerships program, the training will be delivered by the Partnerships between Education and Autism Community Group, led by Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect), and including Autism Queensland and Autism South Australia.

Says the Minister Assisting for School Education Brendan O’Connor, "Since 2008, Positive Partnerships has trained more than 8000 parents, carers and school staff across Australia in how better to meet the needs of students with autism, and provided online resources for more than 28,000 people."
