Go Blue from April 2 to increase greater understanding, acceptance and inclusion of people on the autism spectrum.
Autism is a complex, lifelong developmental disability that affects a person's ability to communicate, interact with others and cope in everyday situations. The cause of autism is not fully understood, but structured early intervention, therapy and education delivered by professionals with expertise in autism can make a significant difference.
We acknowledge that Australia has come a long way in raising awareness about autism but there's still more to be done. During April, Autism Queensland asks our supporters to raise funds to help us support people living with autism.
Why we need your support
All funds raised during April will help Autism Queensland continue to provide vital services for children and adults living with autism.
Established in 1967, Autism Queensland has a proud tradition of family-centred practise for individuals of all ages and the families, professionals and others who support them.
Our team of allied health professionals and educators deliver services throughout Queensland from centres in Brisbane, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay and Cairns. Our evidence-informed programs aim to help people with autism cope with the challenges associated with their diagnosis while also focussing on their individual strengths and abilities.
