Supporting children with autism through early intervention

At Yooralla, we have a team of specialists from different disciplines who specialise in early intervention for children with autism.

World Autism Awareness Day, observed annually on 2 April, is an important reminder of the importance of fostering understanding, acceptance, and support for individuals with autism spectrum disorder.

While the day aims to amplify voices, raise awareness, and promote inclusion for the diverse community of individuals with autism, it also highlights the importance of early diagnosis and intervention for children with autism.

At Yooralla, we have a team of specialists from different disciplines who specialise in early intervention. These specialists work together with your family and child to understand your child’s needs and deliver quality, tailored services to support them to achieve their goals and to achieve their full potential.


Yooralla’s children’s therapy team can support children with autism with quality, evidence-based therapy services.

We deliver children's therapy services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and psychology to children in their own environments, such as at home, kindergarten or school, as well as at Yooralla services.

Yooralla also provides a broad range of assessment services, including:

  • fine motor assessments
  • play assessments
  • sensory regulation assessments
  • gross motor assessments
  • speech and language assessments
  • pragmatic and articulation assessments, and
  • equipment prescriptions and application.

Positive Behaviour Support

We work with children presenting with behaviour of concern, and their support network, to develop strategies that build on the child’s strengths and are based on developing positive relationships, communication and coping skills; and on addressing health, environmental and other impacting factors.
