Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia’s largest service provider for people on the autism spectrum. Our specialised, evidence informed schools program is the largest in the world, with additional services that include information and advice, diagnostic assessments, behaviour support, parent and family support, and adult programs. We share evidence-informed Aspect practice and applied research nationwide.
Autism lasts a lifetime and affects about one in 100 Australians, or 230,000 people. The word 'spectrum' reflects the different challenges that people on the autism spectrum face and the degree to which they may be affected.
Our services provide people on the autism spectrum with the opportunity to realise their unique potential, as well as providing much needed support to their families, carers, friends and colleagues. Our vision is to provide the best possible opportunities for people on the spectrum.
