Economic Costs of Autism Spectrum Disorder

This study of the economic costs of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Australia has been undertaken for the Autism Early Intervention Outcomes Unit (AEIOU).

The objective of this study is to develop a better understanding of the likely resource cost incurred by people with ASD, their carers, Government and society. The cost-based approach that is employed here seeks to estimate the resources required to deliver services that specifically relate to the condition of ASD.
