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 raisingchildren.net.au 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 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.
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.
