Group Description

The NQ Autism Support Group Inc is a non-profit organisation made up of parents, carers and anyone interested in Autism. Members of the group work towards awareness and understanding of Autism and advocating for better services and support for those affected by Autism. The group nominates and awards annually those individuals and organisations who are 'Autism friendly.'
Parents in the group have children with Autism who range in age from very young to adults. There are also adults in the group who have received a diagnosis of Autism.
People in the group are invited to be part of a network that is kept current with information about local and worldwide Autism news and events via email. The group has monthly meetings and monthly coffee mornings which are a great way to share information. There are also social groups for siblings and adults with Autism.
