What is the school inclusion program?
Autism SA delivers high-level short term and intensive supports designed to help schools and educators better support children on the autism spectrum and their families.
Autism SA’s highly experienced consultants and facilitators provide a range of services to schools, educators and the families of students with autism so that they can better support children on the spectrum to achieve their goals.
We work collaboratively with the team around an individual, including the student and their family, teachers, school support staff, school leadership, special education co-ordinators and others to develop strategies and implement targeted intervention and support that is appropriate for that individual.

Our consultants and facilitators support capacity building, skill development and strategies in a wide range of areas including, but not limited to:
- Emotional regulation and coping strategies;
- Coping with change;
- Supporting sensory needs;
- Developing social skills and problem solving; and
- Developing and maintaining friendships;
Support may be delivered within the education setting through individualised one-to-one support, a small group setting within the classroom or school environment.
The team work closely with families and educators to help generalise new skills across all contexts, to make a real difference and build capacity at all levels – individual, family, class and school.
How can I benefit from the school inclusion program?
Our consultants and facilitators use a strengths-based, person-centred approach to help improve outcomes for children with autism in all types of educational settings.
School Inclusion Program supports are available across all education sectors in South Australia, including Independent, Catholic and Department for Education schools in both metropolitan and regional areas (Greater Adelaide and Outreach Schools), and can be delivered through a variety of methods, including telehealth and home support packages during both term time and school holidays.
