Autism Advisor Program
What is the Autism Advisor Program?
The Autism Advisor Program (AAP) is a component of the Australian Government's Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) package. Autism Queensland is funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) to deliver the program in Queensland.
The AAP provides support to families of young children by providing information and advice about:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Early childhood intervention
- Other services and supports for the child and family.
Talking About Autism Information Sessions
These are free sessions for parents and carers who have a child on the autism spectrum aged 0-6 years. These sessions will facilitate discussion about autism and provide a safe space for parents to meet and connect with each other. Sessions run once a week for four weeks, and each week presenters and participants will explore a new topic.
WEEK ONE | Exploring Autism
WEEK TWO | Looking at Early Intervention
WEEK THREE | Connecting to Community & Services
WEEK FOUR | Caring for Yourself and Your Family
These sessions are scheduled across the year. For more information please contact the AAP team.
