Our Telethon Holiday Makers Program, held at our centre in Fremantle, is a great introduction to Autism West and our social groups!
We aim to offer a range of activities based on the special interests our participants have identified, which creates a natural social environment where participants have the opportunity to meet like-minded peers and have some new fun experiences along the way!
The Telethon Holiday Makers Program is run by a range of professionals, such as teachers and support workers with autism experience.
Our holiday program benefits families by providing:
- Peace of mind knowing there are suitable and fitting holiday activitiies for children
- A safe and nurturing place for participants amongst like minded individuals
- Social interaction opportunities
- Quality time to spend with the remainder of the family
- The Telethon Holiday Makers Program qualifies for NDIS and CRCC funding
- A rebate may be available to those who self-fund the program.
The program runs from Monday to Friday, except on public holidays, and morning and afternoon tea are provided, however we ask that parents provide a packed lunch for the morning or full day session.

“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.”
“I am very grateful that [my son] gets this chance to interact with other children over the holidays especially since he doesn’t get invited by his school peers. I am also grateful that his younger brother and I also get a chance to spend quality time together during that time. Thank you for all that you and the team at AW do.”
Here’s a snippet from our April 2017 program.
Thanks to Telethon for their continued support of this invaluable program.
