Introduction to Autism
A 2015 survey by the Australian Bureau of Statistics found that about 1 in 150 Australians have Autism. Although people with Autism face many challenges, they can still live the life they choose when they receive the right help. We have abundant experience in helping both children and adults with Autism achieve their goals. Our Autism Care Specialist is ready to meet your needs for outstanding Autism Support.
How Do You Care for Someone with Autism?
Most people with Autism receive care from family members or others close to them. While an Autism Specialist is engaged in training and ongoing education, many family members need assistance in learning how to care for someone with Autism.
These tips can help you offer the best family Autism Care:
- Concentrate on empowering them rather than doing things for them.
- Educate yourself and practice empathy to understand their needs
- Be prepared to adapt your care as their needs change
- Tailor your care to their unique set of conditions if they have more than one disability
- Help them with self-care when needed, but give them space to do it on their own whenever possible
- Keep records of their reactions to the products they use
- Ask them to speak slowly and use fewer words if they are having trouble communicating
- Protect them from all forms of abuse
- Take care of yourself, too, so you will have the strength and stability to continue helping them
- Work with an Autism Support Coordinator to ensure they get all the services they need

Types of Autism Support Services
Is Autism Covered by the NDIS?
Yes! Because Autism is a permanent disability, it is covered by the NDIS in most cases, depending on the severity of your or your loved one’s condition. As of 2019, the average NDIS participant with Autism received $32,800 annually.
For children under the age of seven, the amount was $16,700.
At Maple, we can assist you in the process of assessment to see if you or your loved one qualifies for NDIS Autism benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we have the capacity to provide the services needed.
What Can NDIS Fund for Autism?
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with Autism. These include speech and occupational therapy, physiotherapy, personal care support, community access support, nutritional support, skill development, and behavioural support.
NDIS funding can also provide sensory toys, holiday camps, or pay for a Support Worker to assist you or your loved one at home. The types and amounts of funding available are determined partly by the level of severity.
For children younger than seven years of age, NDIS funding provides early interventions, takes a family-centred approach, and helps families connect with Autism Services Providers.
At Maple, we can assist you or your loved one with the NDIS Application to receive your or your loved one’s rightful funding.
