Autism SA CEO

Helen Graham

“I am passionate about providing outstanding support to the autistic community we serve by embedding person centred and evidence-informed practice at the heart of everything we do. Having worked with the autistic community in my past roles, I am excited about immersing myself in all aspects of the business to create excellent outcomes for everyone that we interact with.
