Since 2012, Aberdeen Standard Investments has partnered with Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect). Their support has been immeasurable: from supporting our Early Intervention Readiness Program, kitting out a classroom in our Treetop School in Adelaide to significantly funding our brand-new school in South Sydney. Their support has been making a great difference to children on the autism spectrum! We’re incredibly proud to partner with Aberdeen Standard Investments and look forward to keep on working together.
Taking your young child to have new school shoes fitted can be challenging for any parent, but it can be especially challenging for parents of children on the autism spectrum. And that’s where a unique partnership comes in: Shoes & Sox and Autism Spectrum Australia work together to make trying on new school shoes a more accessible experience. Shoes & Sox offers private fitting appointments before or after hours or during quieter times with staff being trained in providing a calm and comfortable experience to children on the autism spectrum. Thanks to the incredible commitment of partners like Shoes & Sox we get closer to achieving our mission of making Australia more autism friendly.
