Funding support and program services for Autism Spectrum Disorder children and their families

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Casey Franks
14 Churchward Street

Total Signatures - 867

Sponsoring Member: Jack Dempsey MP

Posting Date: 24/08/2011

Tabled Date: 24/08/2011

Responded By: Hon Curtis Pitt MP on 23/09/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House of the need to provide adequate services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  These services include speech therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and specialised aids. Often these services are restricted to specific age groups.


Your petitioners therefore request the House take the necessary steps to ensure ASD children of all ages and their families receive the funding and programs needed to have access to the support and services they desperately need.
