Alternative Service Delivery

Autism Tasmania is actively responding to the Social Distancing and other restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

We have closed our offices as we are not able to provide face to face support and have also postponed our face to face information sessions and fee for service training workshops.

We will continue to be available from 9 am to 3.00 pm Monday to Friday and can be contacted via our normal telephone numbers and email. See Contact page.

We can conduct Video Conferencing if you have an email address and we are investigating options around online delivery of information sessions and fee for service training.

We will also be launching a Webchat facility in the near future.

To ensure our services to you remain available some of our staff will be working from home and in the event of a lockdown we have the capacity for all our staff to work remotely.

Please stay safe during these most difficult of times and look out for some tips for selfcare both for you and those around you.
