  • Depending in what state you’re in but I think many psychology practices have psychologists and psychiatrist in their team specialised in Autism and other problems. Also the Department of Education should have a special team for children with Autism

  • Usually the support groups would be able to point you in the right direction.

  • I hope you find a good clinic for your friends son

  • I hope use find out:)

  • How did you go? Hopefully you have some answers by now!

  • What state are you from? If in SA, ring Autism SA.

  • Most schools are now set up to take autistic children and you can go and have a chat and a look at any center you like, dont let anyone talk about ‘catchment’ areas as they do not apply to special needs places. Early intervention is essential and can have some great success, I wish you all the best, make strong contacts and speak your mind, Autism Australia is a great place to start and get a great pediatrician to help build a treatment plan.

  • If she’s in qld, give autism qld a call :)

  • I would start with a support group as often they have had experiences with different specialists and can share their knowledge

  • Hope your friend managed to find the info she was after.

  • Did your friend find a good specialist?

  • Did you find a place?

  • I hope you have found some helpful suggestions here.

  • Hope your friend found the info she was after.

  • Google it can provide the answers
