For community: eLearning and resources

Autistic children deserve a childhood full of love, family, fun, learning and personal discovery. 

This Guideline defines evidence-based practices for supporting autistic children and their families that promote a child’s development, their participation in childhood activities, and their wellbeing. It is primarily focused on the delivery of non-pharmacological supports to children aged 0-12 years in community and clinical settings, and doing so in ways that are safe, effective, and desirable to children and their families.

Autism CRC has partnered with universities and professional organisations to deliver learning opportunities and resources to help you understand and apply the Recommendations and Good Practice points outlined within the Guideline.

On this page, you will find an overview of each of the following learning opportunities, links to enrolment providers, and some additional resources. These include:
