The Autism Clinic works to develop and evaluate best practice early interventions for young children with autism in New Zealand.

Established in partnership with the Autism Intervention Trust, the Autism Clinic aims to bridge the gap between research into early intervention therapies and the practical use of this research.

Access for all

We offer parent coaching play groups, one-on-one therapy, and workshops—often at just the cost of room hire.

Our cost structure is designed to help increase access to:

  • early diagnosis of autism
  • early intervention
  • support for those living with autism.

We research the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), other promising early interventions, and support increased opportunities for early diagnosis of autism.
