Where to get help


Just as each child with ASD is unique, your journey through the maze of available services will also be unique. The Autism Services Pathfinder on provides a well-structured list of resources in each state and territory.

The Raising Children website also has a wealth of resources relating to all aspects of ASD, including a parent forum.

Early intervention resources

Early intervention dramatically improves outcomes for both parents and children. As each child with ASD is unique, early intervention therapy is delivered by a range of different health professionals in order to achieve the best results.

Autism associations

Each Australian state and territory also has an autism association. The sections on ‘Early Years’ or ‘Pre-school Years’ will have the most relevant information.
