Global reach

While initially aimed at an Australian audience, The Spectrum has transcended borders, gaining international acclaim as a pivotal resource for autism specific information. A significant portion of the site’s visitors come from abroad, underscoring the global demand for reliable information and support.

Among the wealth of resources, the autism checklists, especially the adult checklist, stand out for their popularity. These tools are instrumental in helping individuals ascertain if they, or someone they know, might be autistic, guiding them through the process of seeking a formal diagnosis and understanding the benefits thereof.

Niki Welz, Autism SA Research, Project and Resources Creative expressed pride in the website’s global impact.

“This shows there is a thirst for reliable, credible information about autism, not just from Australians, but the world over. It’s a privilege for Autism SA to be able to provide that information and empower people to make informed decisions that impact their lives.”
