Moving beyond love and luck: Building right relationships and respecting lived experience in New Zealand Autism Policy

Increasing diagnoses of autism present policy issues for government agencies charged with supporting and providing services for those with autism and their families. Hilary Stace’s PhD research looks at how utilising the lived experience of autism can contribute to improved public policy. Hilary is aiming to complete her PhD in 2010.
