Early Childhood Services
Early diagnosis followed by structured, individualised services can make a significant difference in the lives of young children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Autism Queensland offers a range of early childhood services for young children, including group programs. Developed and delivered by therapy and education professionals with expertise in ASD, they focus on key elements including behaviour, developmental and social skills and family-based interventions to meet the needs of children and their families. These services are delivered from our centres in Brisbane, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay and Cairns. If you seek information for support for other areas of Queensland please call 07 3273 0000 or email email@example.com.
Is your child still receiving funding from the Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) or Better Start for Children with Disability (Better Start) programs? All early childhood services have been approved by the Department of Social Services. Autism Queensland is a registered provider of NDIS supports so families may use their funding (if applicable) to pay for these services. Rebates may also be available through Medicare and private health insurance, please ask us about this.
