News: Australian support "hub" for individuals with autism launched
According to Luke Michael who is a journalist at Pro Bono News, an Australian social news source, there is a new resource for individuals with autism in Australia. The service is called "Autism Connect" and it aims to address a wide variety of needs across a broad age range.
The producers have created a hub that people in the autism community of Australia can use to learn about services.
This hub includes fact sheets, tools, and a local directory for people to locate services and community activities near them.
Minister for Families and Social Services Anne Ruston said the Morrison government provided $8.4 million to expand Autism Connect into a national support service.
“From diagnosis through to adulthood, we want to ensure the more than 200,000 Australian people with autism have the right support to meet their needs and participate fully in the community,” Ruston said.
