Autism Program

Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder that affects a person’s understanding of what they see, hear and sense. This results in problems with communication, social skills and behaviour. At Child Aware we offer a number of services to assist you to meet the special needs of your child and family. Our staff are providers under the Helping Children with Autism program and have experience in working with a broad range of presenting issues. Once commenced in Brisbane, Child Aware will provide services under the NDIS. 

 

Assessment for the Diagnosis of Autism

Prior to obtaining an official diagnosis from a Paediatrician, children are required to complete psychometric assessment of their cognitive skills, behaviour and development. At Child Aware we are able to provide this service to families at a low cost, with limited waiting times and prompt report turn around. Child Aware offer cost effective assessment options.

Social Skills Groups

Children diagnosed with Autism often experience difficulties making and keeping friends. Social skills training is a fun and practical way to develop social skills and further promote independence and self-esteem.

 

What Children Will Learn

  • Interaction with other people: greetings, eye contact, personal boundaries and social rules
  • Emotions: understanding own and others emotions
  • Friendship: Sharing & turn taking, asking about interests, reciprocal conversation
  • How to manage bullying

Individual Sessions

Your child may benefit from an individualised program with one-on-one focus. Your child and family will work with a psychologist or mental health accredited social worker to address the concerns you have regarding their behaviour, emotions or learning.

 

Parent Support

Learning that your child has Autism can feel overwhelming. At Child Aware we offer parent support to help you understand your child’s diagnosis and assist you to manage your child’s difficulties with communication, social skills, behaviour and emotions.  At Child Aware we believe that all parents can benefit from support in their role as a parent.

  

Fees

If you have funding available under the Helping Children with Autism program there will be no out of pocket cost for your sessions. For families that do not have this funding, please click here to find out more about our fees and rebates.
