Published online:

The third edition of the Guideline was released on 21 November 2022:

Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People now lead the Guideline and the Living Guideline process, in partnership with the Ministry of Education.


The New Zealand Autism Spectrum Disorder Guideline second edition was published in 2016.

As part of their commitment to the implementation of the Guideline, the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education agreed to establish a Living Guideline process. This process is where a guideline is regularly updated and refined to reflect new evidence and changing user needs. Each update is reported in a comprehensive supplementary paper.

This supplementary paper describes a systematic review which aims to provide an evidence-based synthesis of research published in or beyond 2004 relating to the effectiveness of sexuality education for young people on the autism spectrum.
