Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect)

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are lifelong developmental disabilities characterised by marked difficulties in social interaction, impaired communication, restricted and repetitive behaviours and sensory sensitivities.

1 in 100 people in Australia have an ASD and without support, participation in education, employment and relationships can be difficult.

Those affected often experience severe isolation and overwhelming anxiety. And the frustration and confusion they face with the demands of everyday life are only made worse by a lack of community understanding.

Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is Australia's largest not-for-profit provider of services for people with autism and their families.

Through specialised assistance, education and support, Aspect works to improve the quality of life for the person with autism and their whole family.

Last year, over 43,000 Australian children were diagnosed with an ASD. There is no cure but with the right support, there is hope. That's where you can help. By leaving a bequest to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) in your will, you can play a vital role in helping us to create a brighter future for children with autism and their families.
