We deliver a flexible and broad range of services that focus on the child and family to build practical skills, increase knowledge and encourage participation within their community.
Our team of highly skilled early years staff work across a number of areas, including diagnosis, positive behaviour support, developmental and social learning, therapy and family-based interventions.
Where to start
The first step is to get a diagnosis for your child. Our diagnostic assessment service provides specialist psychologists who will spend several hours with you and your child for a considered, accurate diagnosis.
We also obtain information from you, your child’s preschool teachers, carers and others who have observed and know your child well, for the most accurate results.
Effective early childhood support programs can greatly improve the quality of life for children on the autism spectrum and those with other developmental concerns. Our early childhood supports cater for children in the early choildhood years (0-9). Our family-centred approach recognises the importance of working in partnership with family members.
We tailor our support to meet the individual needs of your child and we focus on supporting them in their natural environments where possible.
The Autism Advisor Program at Autism Spectrum Australia ended on 31st March, 2021. This means that services including Post Diagnostic Support phone calls, Parent Support Groups and the Early Intervention Ready Program, as well as the Webinars for Professionals and Early Childhood Professionals, are no longer be available.
