"This framework seeks to map out the competencies required by professionals supporting autistic people within Disability Support Services funded by the Ministry of Health. It is a response to identified evidence of gaps in knowledge and training across the sector as well as an approach consistent with recommendations from the NZ Autism Spectrum Disorder Guideline. It is hoped that this framework would serve as a foundation for a more standardised approach to learning and development and allow organisations and individual employers to take a more consistent approach towards workforce development." - Purpose of the Framework p.6
