The Autism Association of Western Australia offers a range of services to people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. In addition to services we offer, we have specialist advisors available every day to provide support over the phone or via email.
We're here for you
Last year, over 7,500 people contacted us for support. Many people seek advice or information on the early signs of Autism and support available, others simply wanted to talk through their concerns.
All calls are one to one and completely confidential. Our staff can address your questions and provide support to link into supports and services. We also frequently run no cost workshops in the community to support families who suspect their child may have Autism.
