Sydney Metropolitan Based Services Currently Available For Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Other Special Needs.

The following list of Sydney Metropolitan based services currently available for children with Autism and other special needs, has been prepared using information that has been either provided to or sourced by the Luke Priddis Foundation.

It is by no means a complete list of all services available in the Sydney Metropolitan area and inclusion in the list does not mean that the Luke Priddis Foundation recommend the services.

Rather, this list of services has been included on our website, to assist parents and carers of children with Autism and special needs, in their quest to find services for their children.

If you are a service provider and would like your information included on this list, please email your details to info@lukepriddisfoundation.com

If you are a parent or carer who knows of a relevant service that is not on this listing and that you think should be included, please email the details of the service to info@lukepriddisfoundation.com

Services have been split up into the following groups:
