Autism Spectrum Family Support Group

The Macarthur Autism Spectrum Family Support Group was set up at the request of parents caring for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

This support group provides an opportunity for parents to:

  • Share their experiences and knowledge
  • Organise social and information activities
  • Lobby for more services where needed
  • Learn more about services and support available for families and children from experts in the field

The group is dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders and is open to parents and family members of children with any Autism Spectrum Disorder, including Asperger’s Syndrome.

Meetings run from 10.30am to 12.30pm on the Second Tuesday of each month with a free light lunch and guest speakers each month.

The group will meet on the following dates in 2018:

10th July
14th August
11th September
9th October
13th November
11th December
