Workshop to help families with children on autism spectrum

January 10, 2019 by  

Amaze, previously known as Autism Victoria, is presenting a workshop in Caulfield for parents and carers of children from 0-6 years who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or are in the process of diagnosis.

Amaze is the peak Victorian body for people living with ASD, their families and supporters. It works to raise awareness of how ASD impacts individuals and their families and to ensure that people with ASD have the chance to participate in and contribute to society. Amaze provides resources and independent, credible information to families, professionals, government and other interested community members.

The workshop aims to give participants an understanding of ASD and how it affects each individual child and their family. It will also show parents and carers how they can make a difference to their child and will explain how to navigate through the system for early intervention and how to access available funding. Parents, foster parents, grandparents and kinship carers and legal guardians may attend.

Organisations holding events such as this often use poster printing to spread awareness of the event.

The Early Days – My Child and Autism workshop will take place at Caulfield Park Pavilion, 28 Balaclava Road on 25th February from 9:30am to 2:30pm. The workshop is free but registration is required and lunch will be provided.
