Training For Families

Autism SA, through the Education and Training Services, provides quality interactive workshops presented by facilitators with experience and expertise in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

General Family Workshops are free workshops presented by Specialised Support Service Advisors and are for families registered for services with Autism SA only. There are a range of workshops on a variety of topics. These can range from introductory sessions on what is the autism spectrum, through to a series of workshops aimed at assisting families to understand behaviour. 

In Focus Family Workshops are presented to a small group by experienced professionals. Sessions focus on a specific topic and focus on developing families and carers knowledge, understanding and skills in that particular area. Sessions aim to be interactive, practical and realistic for participants. NDIS funding can be used to access these workshops if approved by an NDIA planner. Professionals and families whom are not registered for services through Autism SA are welcome. 

Early Days Workshops area a series of workshops for mothers, fathers, carers and families of young children (0-6 years) who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder or who are going through the assessment and diagnostic process.

These workshops are provided free of charge, funded by the federal government Helping Children with Autism initiative and delivered by the Autism Advisor Programs in South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Positive Partnerships Workshops are suitable for mothers, fathers, carers and families of school aged individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. They are provided free of charge as part of the federal government Helping Children with Autism initiative and have a strong focus on evidence based practice.
