In Focus Workshops for Families

In Focus Family Workshops are unique workshops presented to very small groups of participants, allowing for specific questions and scenarios to be discussed with the experienced presenter from Autism SA. These sessions focus on a specific topic and will develop the participants' knowledge and understanding of the topic, and give participants specific strategies that they can use in a range of environments.

In order to use NDIS funding to access these workshops you must have 'Improved Daily Living Skills' OR 'CB Daily Living' listed as a support item within your, or your child's NDIS plan, have a budget allocated to this line, and the plan must be valid until after the workshop.
