Autism West is here to help.
A community where young Western Australians with autism are accepted, celebrated and supported.
For young people to engage successfully with their community they need opportunities to build self-esteem, social skills, independence and confidence.
Our services include a range of social groups for kids and young adults aged 10 to 30 where you can make new friends, engage in activities that interest you and learn new skills such as computer coding, art or Lego robotics.
We’re also here for you and your family.
Autism West is a place for you to develop your own support network and connect with other families. You can take advantage of our information resources and education opportunities, including our annual Autism West Symposium. And our advisory services will help you work out where to go and who to turn to for the support you or your child needs.
Our partnership with Curtin and Deakin Universities has resulted in a ground-breaking new autism therapy app called TOBY (Therapy Outcomes By You), an early intervention app designed to teach parents how to easily embed autism therapy into their daily routine. The play based activities are aimed at 2-4 year old children with autism.
Our mission is to deliver quality services to young Western Australians with autism to enable them to connect successfully with others and the world around them.
What We Do
Autism West provides unique opportunities for children, teenagers and young adults to gain skills and experience that enable them to connect successfully with others and the world around them. We see incredible potential for many young people with autism, and we aim to motivate them, build their strengths and provide a platform for achieving great things. Using a strength-based approach, we work with young people to identify their interests and talents. Together, we develop projects that engage and challenge them, teaching them skills for life.
Who We Are
Autism West is a local Western Australian not-for-profit organisation run by a volunteer Board. We rely on corporate support, donations and project grants to offer our services as we receive no Government operational funding. Autism West is an incorporated association with deductible gift recipient status.
