To ensure that we are providing services of an exceptionally high standard, our services undergo ongoing quality reviews based on feedback from people with Autism and their families. As an endorsed service provider for the Department of Communities – Disability Service (previously Disability Services Commission), NDIS and the Department of Social Services we are regularly reviewed externally by these departments. This is to ensure that you receive the best support possible within the relevant quality frameworks and the National Disability Service Standards.
