South Australia's autistic community wants the new minister for the disability to raise public awareness and improve access to support in schools. ... /101350646

According to Ms Murphy, "Part of our policy is to invest $50 million for 100 new speech pathologists, OTs, psychologists and other supports in our schools," Ms Bourke said.

"I know parents and autistic students probably want more support as well, but I'm proud that at least this is a start, it's a government that has recognised there needs to be more support in our schools so that we can help provide that free support in our classrooms."

Ms Murphy also called for teachers to be better trained in supporting students with autism.
