Early Days is a series of FREE workshops for parents and other family members of young children (0-6 years) who are on the autism spectrum. They are also suitable for parents who feel their child may be on the spectrum but have not received a formal diagnosis.

Early Days Program Update

The Early Days* program has been addressing the needs of parents and other family members caring for young children under 7 years on the autism spectrum for the past decade.

In these uncertain times we want you to know we are still here for you.


The Early Days providers across Australia remain committed to ensuring families still have access to our team of facilitators with extensive knowledge and expertise in autism.  This will be achieved by offering the Early Days workshops as webinars and/or family telephone consultations.


We see this an opportunity to extend our reach and hope to link in with more families. The webinar platform is not geographically restricted, meaning you can connect in from across the country.


This may be challenging as it is new journey for all, however we’re willing to give it a go and hope you are too.


We look forward to connecting with you in this new space and hope you continue to seek our support and utilise this valuable resource. If you require assistance please email.
