Family Support Groups
Support groups are a great way for parents and carers to meet with others who share similar experiences, to find and provide support, to share ideas and to gain information.
Many of the Support Groups work closely with Autism Queensland in order to:
- promote and further the knowledge and sympathetic understanding of the problems and behaviour of people with ASD;
- foster community awareness and interest in the welfare of people with ASD;
- encourage support and communication between parents, friends and carers of people with ASD;
- organise outings/functions for the purpose of providing social interaction for people with ASD, their parents, friends and carers.
The activities of the Autism Queensland Support Groups are covered under Autism Queensland’s insurance policy and receive some financial support from Autism Queensland.
