We are excited to announce that Autism West has been awarded a grant from Telethon to continue our Telethon Holiday Makers Program in 2017 to support our members throughout the holiday seasons!
The Telethon Holiday Makers Program is our holiday program, providing a variety of indoor/ outdoor, and centre-based/ community based activities dependent on their areas of interest, strengths and support needs.
The Telethon Holiday Makers Program are open to school-aged children and is run by a range of professionals, such as teachers and support workers with autism experience.
Thank you Telethon!

We were so appreciative of your holiday program as it was a wonderful opportunity for [our daughter] to socialise and experience fun and stimulating activities in a safe and supportive environment. It also gave us a rare opportunity for respite as school holidays are a stressful time for [our daughter] and the family.
