Autism spectrum services

If your child has autism or social communication disorder (SCD), you can get support at school.

Support at school

Austism advisors can assist in developing support strategies for your child to maximise their educational outcomes.

They can do all of the following:

  • deliver online professional learning activities for educational staff who work with your child
  • work with outside agencies to coordinate the delivery of services
  • give advice to the school on making adjustments to your child’s environment at school
  • give advice to the school on support strategies for personalised learning and transition plans for your child
  • share contacts of organisations that provide advice and workshops on how to support your child at school.

How to get support

Talk to your child's teacher or contact school support services by either calling 08 8944 9341 or emailing sesupport.det@nt.gov.au
