One of Autism West’s most important roles is to provide resources, information and support to people with ASD, their families and carers, as well as the wider community.
Whether you’re a family member, teacher, carer, volunteer, health professional, LAC/My Way Coordinator, or a member of the community, we will help you out in any way we can or point you in the right direction.
Autism West Social Groups
Our social groups provide opportunities for young people on the spectrum to connect and learn.
Planned to reflect the diversity, individuality and rights of our members, we use a strengths-based approach with the aim to engage and motivate participants and develop life-skills.
Our social groups are planned and developed with active involvement from our group members, with Autism West staff facilitating activities chosen by group members. These social groups are great places to develop friendships while having fun exploring things they are interested in:
Telethon Holiday Makers Program – 5-18 years
AWESOME Group – 10-15 years
Youths Engaging Successfully (YES Group) – 13-18 years
Creative Skills – 15-30 years (one-to-one support)
Step Into Social (SIS) – 18-30 years
Autism West currently offers a variety of social groups for young people with autism at various locations North and South of the river in the Metropolitan Perth area. For more details contact us to discuss.
