Useful guides

Autism SA is proud to launch an Airport Arrival and Departure Guide for people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder with support of Adelaide Airport Limited.

The purpose of these guides is to support people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and people who are unfamiliar with using Adelaide Airport to understand the process of arriving and departing through the Adelaide Airport. The guides will assist people living with ASD in providing prior notice of the processes and expectations of Adelaide Airport through visual aids and steps to follow. 

Visit the Adelaide Airport website for more information at: http://www.adelaideairport.com.au/air-travel/passengers/special-assistance

Acknowledgment - Staff at Adelaide Airport for their assistance in the development of the booklet and Michelle Kappler who undertook and led this project whilst on placement at Autism SA.

The Charter of Rights for Children and Young People in Care

The Charter of Rights for Children and Young People in Care states simply and clearly the rights of children and young people who are under the guardianship or in the custody of the Minister for Education and Child Development.
The South Australian Parliament has legislated that any person involved with children in care in a formal capacity, such as a social worker or a carer, must consider and ‘seek to implement to the fullest extent possible, the terms of the Charter’ (Children’s Protection Act 1993, 52EF). The Charter is promoted and monitored by the Office of the Guardian for Children and Young People. Click here for more information.
