Autism funding that can happen for Preschoolers/ and school aged children
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (herein referred to as ‘the Department’) provides two different types of funding to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Preschool Autism Funding is provided for parents or licensed early childhood centres to help with the employment of an Autism Assistant for preschool children with Autism who receive Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) through the Early Years Autism Service.
School-age Autism Funding is provided for home or community-based supports outside of school hours for school-age children with Autism. The funding can be used by parents or designated agencies to offset the costs of employing a) a one-to-one tutor in the home to supplement the child’s school program and minimize regression of academic and social skills during school breaks and summer months, or b) a one-to-one aide for group activities in the community, when an aide is required to enable participation.
