Welcome to Autism Advisory Adelaide
Autism Advisory Adelaide is dedicated to offering a wide variety of specialised services for children and adults on the Autism Spectrum and the individuals who support them.
We integrate the most recent research on Autism with our practice to enable individuals to build their skills, utilise their strengths and reach their full potential. Our highly individualised, collaborative service ensures the participant is at the centre of all decision making and the focus remains on long term outcomes important to them.
Autism Advisory Adelaide has 5 core values, each reflected in our colourful tree logo. Our values were inspired by the origin of the word 'Autism'; originally derived from the Greek word 'autos' meaning 'self'.
Self-advocacy. The green leaf. Empowering individuals on the Autism Spectrum to ask for what they need and desire using functional communication.
Self-competence. The blue leaf. The ability to tackle lifes challenges through skill and capacity building.
Self-regulation. The pink leaf. Ensuring safety for ourselves and others, encouraging productive coping strategies and building positive mental health.
Self-efficacy. The yellow leaf. Remembering the power we possess as individuals and living up to our unique potential.
Self-determination. The purple leaf. Accepting challenges knowing we can cope, contributing to our growth and propelling us forward.
