Support us

Membership with Autism Tasmania is free for people who identify on the autism spectrum and their immediate family.

Membership is also FREE for autism allies – organisations and communities members who strive to make a difference too!

Signing up puts you in touch with our local community of individuals on the spectrum, parents, educators, and other professionals.

Members have access to our library of resources and receive our regular email newsletter, with details of upcoming events, stories from the community, and more.

Donations over $2 are tax-deductible and help us continue to be an active voice in promoting greater understanding and better service provision for Tasmanians on the autism spectrum.
