Communicating findings

AuSAP findings are communicated through a range of practical tools and resources to support those with responsibility for the transport of children with disabilities and medical conditions. These include:

National product register

MACA maintains a national register of special purpose car seats, which only feature products that have been endorsed by MACA for publication following AuSAP testing.

Training

Knowledge and learning from AuSAP is incorporated in MACA’s Australian-first training course targeted at allied health professionals: Transporting Children with Disabilities and Medical Conditions.

Product guides

MACA develops product guides for special purpose car seats included on the national register. The guides bring together important independent information such as AuSAP testing outcomes, safe use, compliance with standards, and prescribing advice. The guides support allied health professionals who assess children’s transport needs, as well as product suppliers and government agencies – ultimately promoting the safe use of special purpose car seats and improving road safety.

Parent information

Our website includes FAQs for parents to inform them about AuSAP and how it aims to contribute to advancing the rights of children with disabilities to safe and accessible transport. More work is needed to provide access to information in languages other than English.

Media

We undertake a range of media and communications activities to raise awareness of AuSAP both within Australia and internationally. Visit our media centre for more information.
