Autism Spectrum Disorder

 

There is a large amount of information online about Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have collated a list of some of the most informational and helpful resources below.

Autism Awareness has placed their resources into groups for website, books, online forums, educational resources, online forums, clinical info and research. It is a good place to start when you are trying to find information without surfing the large universe of the internet yourself.

Amaze is the peak body for people with autism and their families, with a focus on Victorian services as Amaze is located in Victoria, Australia.

Here are a list of Amaze services that will be of help:

Choosing Apps

Children on the spectrum, like all other kids, have access to a range of internet based learning and gaming apps. The Autism Apps Website will help you choose what fits best for your child and their needs.

Who is behind the Autism Apps website?

This website has been developed by the Autism Association of Western Australia in response to the many parents, teachers and individuals who have asked us how to effectively use technology to support a person with Autism.

Resources for Patients

Hello all,

Now that the borders are open and Covid19 planning has changed we are also changing to lower your and our risk of catching Covid19.

SA Health has released a matrix to use if exposed to COVID in a health setting. If we are F2F for over 15 minutes and not wearing at least an N95 mask for the whole appointment – you and we need to quarantine for 7 days. To lower the risk to our patients of illness and time spent in quarantine we are therefore:

– Lessening the number of people in our practice, Dr Turner will only be doing Telehealth to assist in this, and we ask those attending for other clinicians to come alone or with one adult;

– We will have everyone stay in their car until their appointment time, then come to the back door to enter. We will not be using our waiting room;

– All bills will be invoiced and sent to you so you don’t need to stand at the front desk;

– You are welcome to ask for your appointment to be by Telehealth at any time.

We really want to stay open, offer health care, and be as safe as we can – and we really hope to go back to our regular face to face work using the whole practice space, as soon as we can, and as soon as SA Health give that guidance.
