What We Do
Advice and Guidance
Salisbury Support for Autism helps autistic individuals achieve their potential. Assistance is available for the families of children with autism depending on the medical diagnosis of the child and how the child is being impacted by the condition.
Children and adults with autism frequently find changes in their routines incredibly difficult to handle, which can lead to extreme anxiety and distress.
Throughout these challenging times, our group is continuing to support adults and children with autism, and their families.

We are committed to providing an enriched and positive environment, quality programs and integrated support network for families and caregivers all of which are designed to promote growth, independence, and social interaction.
Salisbury Support 4 Autism utilises a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) approach to support adults on the Autism Spectrum reach their greatest potential.
