Autism Specific Programs

​Autism Specific Programs

Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder that affects a person’s understanding of what they see, hear and sense. This results in problems with communication, social skills and behaviour.

Autism is a complex condition. There are a number of diverse program options to assist you to meet the special needs of your child and family.

We are a community service providing comprehensive diagnostic assessments for children and young people suspected of having an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

We work with public and private diagnostic services, including paediatricians, psychiatrists and psychologists when a decision has been reached that a comprehensive and specialised autism spectrum assessment is appropriate.
