When asked "How well is Australia respecting people's human rights?" answers indicated that people with disability are at most risk of missing out on their right to education: see  

"When asked to provide more context about who was particularly unlikely to enjoy their right to education in 2020, our respondents mentioned all of the following: ... Children with disabilities such as autism or ADHD, as well as children diagnosed with behavioural disorders".

The challenge now is for Australia to improve education outcomes for autistic Australians in future.
