Autism Victoria Consultant List
Over the past three years Autism Victoria has experienced exceptional growth both in organisational size and also in the services and supports we are now offering to the broad community of Victoria and more importantly the ASD community.
The Board of Governance recognises that although it is a skills based board it is not possible to include all skills areas in a nine member Board and for this reason they believe it would be of real value for the organisation to access the broadest range of knowledge and skills possible to add value to the outcomes we are aiming to achieve.
In response the Board is keen to develop a list of “consultants” to Autism Victoria, who would be able to provide additional or specialist advice and guidance on a range of issues that from time to time the Board and staff consider beyond their level of expertise. It is not intended that the consultant roles will demand major time or other commitments.
The “consultants” may be experts in a range of fields and some examples include legal, housing, finance, governance, evidence-based interventions, research or media/marketing.
For example the Board may seek advice from a “consultant” on a legal matter, or if planning to relocate the office, commercial property advice or perhaps advice regarding new treatments being promoted to families. In essence the request for advice would be in those areas in which the Board and staff do not feel they have the requisite knowledge and skills to make the most informed decision.
The Board therefore are extending an invitation to supporters of Autism Victoria to nominate as consultants.

Autism Victoria thanks our supporters in anticipation.
Early Days Workshops
Early Days is a series of workshops for mothers, fathers and other family carers of children aged six years or younger who have recently been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or are going through the assessment and diagnosis process. Workshops are available in a variety of formats - face to face, over the telephone or online.
This hugely successful program has been developed and managed by the Parenting Research Centre since the workshops began in 2009, but as of the 1stJuly, face to face and telephone workshops will now be organised and delivered by the Autism Association in each State and Territory.
Autism Victoria is currently taking expressions of interest from parents and carers and we hope to begin running workshops very soon! Please register your details with our Information team on 1300 308 699, and we look forward to presenting Early Days workshops in your region soon.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition phase.

“I made my money back and more: there’s tons of stuff I’ve used. And what’s really good is that I’ve tried so many new restaurants because they are in the book. If I’m going somewhere, I look for vouchers and put them in my wallet to save taking the whole book.”
