CPA is pleased to welcome specialist psychology team, Diverse Minds, to our Allambie Heights campus in northern Sydney from 23 July 2019.

Diverse Minds is a specialist psychological practice developed to identify and support individuals who may be on the Autism Spectrum.

Undiagnosed, children and adults on the Autism Spectrum are at risk of not receiving the supports they need to better engage with the world around them.

We spoke to Clinical Psychologist, Dr Hugh Walker at Diverse Minds about the signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder and what parents and teachers should do if they spot signs. He also discussed the benefits of a diagnostic assessment and ongoing support for adults as well as children.

 

If you know somebody who is showing signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder, help them to access support.

Bookings available now. Call 1300 888 378, email ask@cerebralpalsy.org.au or complete the enquiry form online at https://cerebralpalsy.org.au/ser…/autism-spectrum-diagnosis/
