Asperger Services Australia Ltd is a volunteer organisation established in 1995 located on the north side of Brisbane. We support families and individuals who live with Asperger's Syndrome. It's life long condition falling under the umbrella of Autism. In 2012 we opened the first Asperger Centre in Australia and are running groups for children (5-10), a Youth (high school students), Adult self-help discussion group/Adult social and a craft group. We offer free information to families and individuals. Maintain a large lending resource library and provide clinical and non-clinical services. Our 5 psychologists can diagnose and support you and your family at a reasonable cost, well below city prices. An occupational therapist will compliment the support.
With the NDIS being rolled out in Queensland in 2019, our very very small funding we received from the State Government is going to come to an end. There are many families who will not be able to participate in the NDIS and experience financial stress. These families have the same rights to get support and the Asperger Centre will do that. Having said all that, we need your charity dollar to the larger organisations to be redirected to small charities like the Asperger Centre. Autism ration in Australia is currently 1:68 so you would have come across someone with Autism/Asperger within your family or friends circle.
