Support for Aboriginal communities

We often coordinate trips to regional areas including Aboriginal communities to provide Autism consultation and support. This can assist with early identification, diagnosis and early intervention.
In particular, we can run Early Days Workshops, which are designed for mothers, fathers, carers and family members of young children (zero to eight years of age) with Autism or those who are undergoing a diagnosis.

The workshops help families to understand how Autism affects their children and can help the child learn skills like toileting and how to play. Workshops for families can occur in their homes or in a place they suggest like a health care centre. Workshops can also be provided to community groups at suggested locations.

To find out more please contact us to speak to an Autism Advisor.

Support for Culturally and linguistically Diverse (CALD) families

The Early Days Workshops can be translated into all languages, they are designed for mothers, fathers, carers and family members of young children (zero to eight years of age) with Autism or those who are undergoing a diagnosis.

The workshops help families to understand how Autism affects their child and can help the child learn skills like toileting and how to play.

Supporting Positive Behaviour Change | WEBINAR | 15/06/2022

online webinar, Australia

To change behaviour, we need to understand why it is occurring. Challenging behaviour happens, not because the person who has Autism is trying to be ‘difficult’, but because they are responding to a situation in the only way they know how. Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an approach that helps us move closer to understanding the cause of the behaviour and what the person is getting out of it so that we can support them to more effectively meet their needs.
