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.
WHAT WE DO
The focus of the Advisory Board is working with governments to develop appropriate policies for people with autism, their families and carers, disseminating information about autism and working with the Australian autism community to build skills.
Making A Difference
At Australian Advisory Board on Autism, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue.

We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Homeless Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
