Information, Education, Inclusion, Awareness

Autism Awareness is Australia’s leading voice for autism.

Our goal is simple: to improve the lives of all Australians on the autism spectrum and the families who love them.

We empower parents and carers with quality information and resources. We provide targeted educational programs to families, professionals and the broader community. We support inclusion for people on the autism spectrum… and we have some fun along the way too.

We know that families are the best advocates for their children, and we are here to ensure they have access to the best quality information and supports to help them along the way.
