Welcome to Autism Asperger ACT

Welcome to Autism Asperger ACT

Autism Asperger ACT Inc is a not-for-profit charitable organisation. Our mission is to provide information and practical support to people involved in the autism community. We aim to be an active voice in promoting and developing improved service provision to meet the specific needs of people who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

We are partly funded by Commonwealth and ACT Government grants, however we also rely heavily on memberships and the generosity of individuals to help us raise awareness, increase our service delivery and support people with ASD.

As the rate of diagnosis rises, so does the demand on our staff and limited resources. The services we provide include; disseminating information, providing referrals, giving advice and offering practical support to people with ASD. We also aim to provide professional development and information to educators, employers, carers and the families of people with ASD.

We need your help to sustain and grow our organisation so that we can continue to be an active voice in promoting and developing service provision for people living with ASD.

'Starting Out on the ASD Journey: Parent Perspectives" is a series of interviews about receiving a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, by Autism Asperger ACT. The DVD was produced by Bearcage and funded by the Department of Social Services.
