AUSTRALIAN ADVISORY BOARD ON AUTISM

The Australian Advisory Board on Autism is the national peak body representing people with autism, their families, carers and helpers. Through its members, the Advisory Board represents over 12,000 people on the autism spectrum and who are members of, or who obtain services from, the Advisory Board’s member organisations. There are many more people who are on the autism spectrum (often accompanying other conditions) but whose needs are met either privately or through other disability programs.
