WHAT WE FIGHT FOR

WHAT EFFECTIVE ACTION CAN ATAC OFFER?

  • Advocacy when the family is in crisis with government departments, Ministers of the Crown, and representation in the Children's Division of the Magistrate's Court. THIS IS OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE.

  • Facilitation of access to professional help in behavioural programmes and speech therapy.
  • Mobilisation of families with autistic children into an effective and vocal lobby group to bring pressure on Governments both State and Federal.

  • FIND OUT MORE

    AUTISM is the largest disability group in Tasmania, and growing at over 10% per annum, yet government support is minimal or non-existent.

    A.T.A.C welcomes the proposals of the Federal Government to provide money for early intervention programmes for acute cases. However, we see it as a drop in the ocean when the needs of autistic children are considered.

    THIS WILL ONLY CHANGE WHEN FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN ON THE AUTISTIC SPECTRUM SPEAK OUT. THE GENERAL PUBLIC MUST BE MADE AWARE ABOUT AUTISM AND THE IMPACT IT HAS ON OUR FAMILIES. THEY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEGLECT OF OUR CHILDREN.

    TAKE THE FIRST STEP AND REGISTER FOR OUR TASMANIANS SPEAKING OUT ABOUT AUTISM CONFERENCETO BE HELD LATER THIS YEAR
