Autism Spectrum Australia
Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia’s largest national service provider for people on the autism spectrum.
Autism is different for everyone. Providing the right support requires understanding individual strengths, interests and aspirations. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. At Aspect, we work in partnership with people of all ages on the autism spectrum, providing a tailored support journey that continually adapts to the needs of each person. Our approach means each person is understood and valued for their unique abilities, supported through their challenges and given opportunities to achieve their goals and fulfil their potential.
Your fundraising will help us provide support through our many services including:
- Specialised schools programme
- Information and advice
- Diagnostic assessments
- Behaviour support
- Parent and family support
- Employment services and adult programmes
Aspect values, respects and promotes the diversity of life experiences of our participants/students, their families and the communities in which we work. Diversity is a strength to celebrate and Aspect recognises it is essential for creating an Aspect culture that is inclusive, respectful and equitable.
People on the autism spectrum see, hear, feel, and experience the world differently.

How your support helps
We need people like you to help us pave the way to a better future.
Autism is a lifelong condition. An estimated 1 in every 70 people in Australia is on the autism spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians. It is likely you know someone – a family member, friend or colleague.
By fundraising for us, you will help provide the best opportunities for people of all ages on the autism spectrum from tailored educational support to fulfilling work lives and improved social environments.
For the first few years of his life, Liam didn’t make direct eye contact and he barely spoke. When Liam began specialised therapy with Aspect and started at his Aspect school, using tools such as visual aids and storyboards, iPads and interactive whiteboards, Liam was learning how to communicate, and to express his needs in new ways.
“Aspect helped give my son a path to join his world with ours. I cannot begin to fathom what my son and my family’s quality of life would be like had we not let Aspect walk along with us on the autism journey.”
