Taking your child along to everyday activities isn't so easy if they have Autism. Many children with Autism are hypersensitive to light, sound, touch, taste, and smell while some are “under-sensitive” to sensory stimuli. But even through a child may be coping with Autism they are is still a child and need to have fun.

Adelaide has many community events and activities that are held by organisations specifically for kids with Autism and Asperger's. Which is great because parents and the kids are in a comfortable environment and can network to build friendships while watching their children gain confidence and skills.
