The AEIOU Foundation for Children with Autism, has a simple yet sincere goal: to provide early intervention that enables children with autism to live their best lives. It’s how they do it that sets them apart from everybody else.
AEIOU is a profit-for-purpose organisation, established in 2005 to deliver high-quality education, therapy and care. AEIOU’s reputable family-centred program meets the Guidelines for Good Practice (Roberts & Prior 2012) and supports children with autism to develop essential life skills, independence and confidence.
Along with providing early intervention, AEIOU is committed to research through the AEIOU Research and Innovation Committee. AEIOU are a founding partner of the first national Autism Cooperative Research Centre (CRC), a founding partner of the Griffith University Autism Centre of Excellence (ACE), and a member of the Australian Autism Alliance.
AEIOU provides strong advocacy at state and federal government levels to raise awareness and increase the financial support for children with autism and their families.
Each child undertaking the AEIOU Program will be armed with an individual support plan, taking their unique needs and strengths into account. Early intervention is life-changing for children and their families.The delivery of evidence-based early intervention not only makes a difference to an individual or family, and there is an estimated $2.1 million cost benefit to society over the lifetime of each child who receives this support.
