With your help we can be there for people wanting to know anything about autism – from what to do next after receiving a diagnosis, to finding out what support is available for them or their loved one, or providing practical tips that we have learnt during our 60 years of being the peak body for autism in SA.

When people contact our Infoline and online chat, they are connecting with a small team who have years of experience in the autism sector. They provide practical and reliable information about autism and have extensive knowledge about the available services and supports for autism across the state.

Our goal is to ensure that people get the support they are seeking, when they need it.

“If Infoline didn’t exist, I honestly don’t know where people would go.”

Peta Richards (pictured) is one of the team members. She loves getting to speak with people from all over South Australia – and interstate too.

“There are people who have been given a diagnosis and they have absolutely no idea what to do or what’s available to them,” she says.

“When they call us there’s this sense of relief, they’ve got someone to talk to who understands.

“We’ll give them phone numbers of providers. We’ll touch base with them before they go in for their NDIS plan, which can be quite daunting, going in there with people talking this NDIS language.

“We help by going through the next steps after getting a diagnosis, but also suggest some proactive strategies that they can do at home, or in the school or childcare centre (if they’re a parent and their child has been diagnosed with autism) that are going to get quick results.

“If Infoline didn’t exist, I honestly don’t know where people would go.”

Please donate today to ensure we can keep being a trusted source for people seeking information and support with autism. With your help we can achieve our vision that all autistic people live the life they choose in an inclusive society.
