Early Days is a national early childhood program for parents who suspect their child is exhibiting signs of autism, have concerns about their child's development or have a diagnosis of autism.
Parents, grandparents and carers of young children aged 0-6 years are welcome to participate in the Early Days program. All of our workshops (face to face events) and webinars (online workshops) are free to attend and held in each state and territory.
Early Days workshops are for everyone. We have tailored workshops to Indigenous families and communities, and families and communities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

This initiative is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
The Early Days program includes a suite of workshops for parents and carers, tailored workshops and also community workshops for indigenous and CaLD agencies as well as rural and remote communities.
These workshops are a meeting point for building awareness of autism and pathways of support for young children with autism and their families. You can request a community workshop for your staff by contacting the Early Days National Coordinator Lynda Melville firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0408 798 466.
Individual webinar/phone consultations
Where geographical location, culture or other factors are a barrier, we are able to offer individual consultations when requested. Early Days is an obligation-free and impartial service.
To find out more about individual consultations please contact the National Coordinator of Early Days, Lynda Melville email@example.com or phone 0408 798 466.
