Support for families

We provide a range of services to families to help children with, or suspected of having, autism thrive and grow.

We currently have a multiple term waiting list for all community-based services, but have more immediate availability for participation in research.

Most of our services are subsidised, giving you affordable options for early intervention and skills development.

We accept referrals from parents, early childhood centres, and professionals. We give preference to children who are:

  • on waiting lists for receiving an autism diagnosis
  • in the process of receiving an autism diagnosis
  • are diagnosed but on waiting lists for receiving services.

Talk to us about the best option—or combination of options—for your child and family.
