Vision and values

The vision and values of inclusionED are informed by those of Autism CRC, and are therefore shaped through the lens of inclusion. 

Our vision is to empower education professionals to discover and respond to the strengths and interests of diverse learners with knowledge and compassion. Our mission is to motivate, facilitate, and translate collaborative research in inclusive learning settings.

We are committed to inclusive research practices. We work with students on the spectrum, their families, and educators to ensure our research provides practical and tangible outcomes that benefit the whole school community.

Autism CRC was established in 2013 and is the world’s first national, cooperative research effort focused on autism. We provide the national capacity to develop and deliver evidence-based outcomes through our unique collaboration with the autism community, research organisations, industry and government. Currently, we have 56 participant organisations and other partners based around Australia and internationally.
