Programmes

Autism New Zealand has a dedicated education team that delivers education and training nationwide.

We have developed a number of externally evaluated, New Zealand based education programmes.

See below for our publicly available community programmes for autistic people, parents/family/whānau, and professionals. Our education team can develop and deliver individually tailored programmes to address the needs of a variety of groups working with different age groups.

Our programmes are delivered by highly skilled facilitators who are professionals working in the field of autism or parents who have lived experience, with consultation from autistic adults.
