Empowering autism families
Autism Awareness Australia was founded in 2007 to improve the lives of all Australians on the autism spectrum and the families who love them.
Our goal is simple: to improve the lives of all Australians on the autism spectrum and the families who love them. We ensure autistic individuals, and their families, have access to free, credible, evidence-based information, resources and tools to empower them to support themselves or their loved ones on the spectrum. We also 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.
In 2011, the United Nations found our work so inspiring we were granted NGO membership to the United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) and asked to present at the annual NGO conference in New York. A huge honour, and one that gives us the opportunity to partner with a global network of organisations to promote our common goals.
