In the public school system, the government has provided funding for some specialist programs in both primary and secondary schools for students with autism. Children share programs with mainstream students as part of their education. Enrolment depends on where you live and are offered at specific schools in the metropolitan area. Access to these programs is limited due to the high demand. Generally these schools follow an Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) approach and so if you would prefer your child to be supported in other ways, you may be better to consider a mainstream environment.
