Autism Tasmania is an independent voice for the Tasmanian autism community.

We provide information, assistance, and resources for people on the spectrum and those who support them.

What we do

Our purpose is to help Tasmanians on the autism spectrum and those who support them achieve the best outcomes possible.
Whether you are seeking support, services, training or information, we can discuss your needs and point you in the right direction.

Unlocking the Potential: Autism Across the Lifespan

Autism presents differently across the lifespan and support priorities change over time.

We have developed the following resources to foster an understanding of the unique strengths and challenges faced at various life stages.

Support us

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

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.
