Approximately 65% of Autism SA's funding is derived from Government sources. The majority of this funding is provided for the Early Development Program and the School Program from the Ministerial Advisory Committee: Students with Disabilities, for educational services. Other government funding is received from the Disability Services Office, for social skills groups, the intensive behaviour program, speech pathology, occupational therapy, family support and for some of our adult programs. Additional funding for adult programs is also received from the Department of Family and Community Services.
All remaining funds have to be raised by Autism SA. This is achieved through charges for training and development programs, seeking grants for particular projects, fees for some services, donations and fundraising activities.
