Register with Autism Queensland
Why do I need to register* my child/myself with Autism Queensland?
Most Autism Queensland services and programs require the individuals accessing them to be registered. Registration also assists us to establish a profile of the people who use our services and enables us to tailor these services accordingly. It also allows us to communicate with you individually. From time to time we may contact you to tell you about new services, programs and events. *If your child has accessed the Autism Advisor Program through Autism Queensland you are not automatically registered with us. You will need to complete an Autism Queensland registration form.
Please note that registration with Autism Queensland does NOT link you to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). For more information about NDIS and funding please click here or call 1800 800 110.
Who can register with Autism Queensland?
Registration is available for individuals who have a diagnosis of ASD, are awaiting diagnosis, or who may benefit from our services. Both adults and children can be registered with Autism Queensland. A person's legal guardian can complete the form on their behalf. Family members of individuals registered with Autism Queensland may also be eligible to access support, but they do not need to register separately.

Can I access any support or services while I am waiting for my registration to be processed?
Yes, you can contact us if you have concerns. Children may also be eligible for a School Advisory Visit. Click here for more information.
I have already registered my child with the Autism Advisor Program. Does this mean my child is automatically registered for Autism Queensland services?
No. Although the Autism Advisor Program in Queensland is hosted by Autism Queensland, this program is required to maintain separate client records. Therefore, you will also have to register with Autism Queensland if you wish to access the relevant services and receive regular information from us.
Please note: If your child is under seven (7) years of age and you live in a local government area that has NOT transitioned to the National Disability Scheme, and your child is NOT registered with the Autism Advisor Program please call 1800 428 847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org as they may be eligible for HCWA funding.
