Creating an autism friendly Australia
We believe that a more autism friendly Australia, is a better Australia.
We feel passionately about inclusion and access for everyone. But for an individual on the spectrum, many public spaces can be challenging to access.
Sometimes making really simple changes or providing an additional resource can make the world of difference to someone on the spectrum and help create a more inclusive environment.
Together, we can work towards an autism friendly Australia.
How we can work together
We understand that there is no “one-size fits all” when it comes to autism, and so we customise our approach for everyone we work with.
Here’s an example of how we can help you make your environment or workplace more autism friendly:
If you are thinking of offering an additional resource or service for people on the spectrum, we can help you reach the Australian autism community and gauge interest with a survey or focus group.
We can visit your organisation, and make a few suggestions for environmental strategies that might make your site more autism friendly.
Our team of specialists can provide training to your staff to help raise awareness and understanding of autism and offer practical tips on how to help someone on the spectrum.
Events and Resources
Some organisations offer autism specific events, early openings, or resources such as social stories, checklists or videos for the autism community. We can assist you in the development and delivery of these materials.
When an organisation becomes more autism friendly, we like to share the good news! We will share your great work with our social media and online community.
Surveys or focus groups with the autism community can be a great way to get feedback about your autism initiative.
In 2018 the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) worked with Autism Spectrum Australia to make a few small changes to their Biennale exhibition and created an autism friendly gallery experience for children and families.
