As part of the report, an in-person and an online survey were conducted among families of children with autism. Focus group interviews were also conducted with 9 teachers serving students with autism and 9 parents of children with autism.

The study found that autistic children face discrimination in school enrollment. 52.6% of participants reported that their children were denied enrollment in school at least once.

While research shows that social exclusion is the most common form of discrimination faced by children with autism and their families, rights violations, including violence, have also been found to occur.
