About the organisation
Irabina Autism Services specialises in delivering programs for children and adolescents diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. We are the largest Autism specific service in Australia and have been providing services for almost 50 years. We recognise that having Autism not only affects the child but affects the whole family and therefore all programs delivered are family centred. We work alongside families to provide Autism education and skills to assist the children and parents or carers on their journey. Our focus is to provide opportunities for toddlers to adolescents to become the best they can be.
Empowering Family-Centred Solutions
There is no group more powerfully placed to meet the needs of someone on the Autism Spectrum than their family – once the family understands what’s happening and how to deal differently with them. We work with families to build the knowledge, understanding and skills to help their special person learn, interact and develop.
Multi-Disciplined Expert Support
Autism is a complex set of developmental problems – so every person on the Autism Spectrum needs different help. Our specialist team includes speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers and special education teachers. They work with the family to develop programs and services tailored to their specific needs. Our focus is on the family, not just the individual. We recognise their strengths and needs and deliver programs and services in ways that support the family as a whole. The children, teenagers and adults who attend our programs receive the specialist services they need to develop and grow. Their families are supported with skills development and education opportunities so that they can help extend and reinforce the formal programs.
Irabina = Awakening
Irabina is an Aboriginal word meaning “awakening” – we’re here to awaken the possibilities too often locked within individuals on the Autism Spectrum, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
