ATEND Tasmanian State committee
ATEND Tasmanian State committee is facilitated by the NDCO Tasmania programme. We hold meetings every four to six months in the lovely township of Ross, which is in the middle of the state. Tasmania has three Disability Advisors at the University of Tasmania, four within TasTAFE and two NDCO’s. We use the meetings to talk about common interests, issues and share current practise. We also invite guest speakers on occasions. Speakers have included NDIA, Department of Education and Tas Deaf. In 2015 the committee organised a forum about further education for students on the spectrum in partnership with the NDCO programme and Autism Tas.
