Welcome to Mansfield Autism Statewide Services

Mansfield Autism Statewide Service (MASS) is an independent not for profit organisation, which supports young people living with Autism, and their families.

We offer a wide range of services for individuals and families living with autism. Our services have been designed as a ‘wrap around’ model – each service complements and enhances the quality of care we provide our clients.


People told me a MASS placement was “Life Changing”. They were not wrong. Above and Beyond. Just keep up the super amazing work guys!!

‘Amazing intense therapy that my son and us as a family have benefitted from! Thank you, thank you, thank you’

We are based in Mansfield in North Eastern Victoria but offer a Statewide Service to the whole of Victoria.

MASS is staffed by a group of professionals who are passionate about upholding and promoting the unique culture which is MASS.

The service was started in 1968 by a parent, Dr. Joan Curtis, who identified that ‘the child’s family are their most important teachers’. At MASS we seek to uphold this philosophy by working alongside families, educational settings and service providers to instill understanding, confidence and determination to create the best outcomes for people with Autism.

We are committed to working with families who are living with Autism – parents and carers can self-refer at any time post diagnosis. 

“The child’s family are their most important teachers…”

Joan Curtis, Founder 1968
