Title 10 questions with… Rozanna Lilley Degree of recognition Regional Media name/outlet Macquarie University This Week Media type Web Country Australia Date 18/02/20 Description Later today, 18 February, The Hon Linda Burney MP will launch the world’s first report into autism in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
The report reveals a lack of support and services, with many families feeling isolated and uncertain about their children’s futures. While autism is likely to be as common in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities as other groups, the report reveals that there are fewer tailored services and support available to these families meaning that autism supports fail to be inclusive of the distinctive cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Among the report’s co-authors is Rozanna Lilley, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Educational Studies. Rozanna’s memoir Do Oysters Get Bored? A Curious Life – where she reflects on family life with a child on the autism spectrum – was shortlisted for a National Biography Award in 2019.
