My Pathways Services
The My Pathways team at Autism SA is the first port of call for people who want to find out more about services, programs and supports, the NDIS, or simply to learn more about autism and what is available in the community.
Our Pathways Consultants have extensive knowledge and experience of autism and can help to arrange supports for individuals and their families, along with more general information about autism.
My Pathways is here to support individuals on the spectrum and their families to achieve their goals.

Are you seeking an autism diagnosis?
If you, your child, or someone you know is displaying some of the characteristics associated with autism, an autism assessment by the Autism SA Diagnostic Team can be conducted to help answer whether the individual is autistic or not.
Although you can be referred to Autism SA by a GP or an allied health professional, it is also possible to make a self-referral, i.e., to arrange an assessment yourself directly with Autism SA.
You can begin the process of making a self-referral by calling the Autism SA Infoline on 1300 288 47, and we will send or email you a referral form.
Do you already have an autism diagnosis?
If you, your child or someone in your care has received a new diagnosis for autism, the Autism SA My Pathways Team is here to assist you in navigating the most relevant pathway.
Once you, your child or someone in your care has received a formal diagnosis of autism from the Diagnostic Team at Autism SA, you can be contacted by the My Pathways Team.
You can also contact My Pathways if you have received a diagnosis from another diagnostic assessment service provider and would now like to enquire about our supports, services and programs.
Are you looking for supports and services?
Autism SA provides a wide range of supports and services for individuals on the autism spectrum, their families and carers.
If you want to find out more about the availability of our services, which groups are currently running, or how to get specialist support, the My Pathways team is here to advise you.
Contact My Pathways to find out about the therapies, programs and supports, or any of the other services provided by Autism SA
Are you looking for groups and programs?
Autism SA provides opportunities throughout the year for individuals on the autism spectrum of all ages to join a variety of groups and programs, including therapy groups, social development groups and family support groups.
Contact the Autism SA Infoline on 1300 288 476 to enquire about the groups and programs that are currently running, the availability of places, schedules, or any other information you may require.
Do you need help with the NDIS?
My Pathways provides support and guidance services for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families to apply for and use NDIS funding to access relevant and desired therapies, supports, programs and other services
As well as assisting and guiding autistic individuals and their families through the process of applying to become NDIS participants, once an NDIS Plan has been accepted and approved, we can provide advice and guidance on selecting relevant and desired therapies, supports, programs and other services.
The role of Support Coordinators is to support individuals and their families to navigate the NDIS, access services and support, and to manage challenges and crises which may arise.
Support Coordinators and Specialist Support Coordinators work with autistic individuals and their families at all life stages.
To find out more about accessing Support Coordination or Specialist Support Coordination services, please contact the Autism SA Infoline on 1300 288 476.
