We offer a wide range of services for individuals and families living with autism, designed as a ‘wrap-around’ model – each service complementing and enhancing the quality of care and support we provide our clients.

Based in Mansfield, we offer a statewide service to the whole of Victoria. Our locally based services operate within the heart of the Mansfield community, enjoying the idyllic location and the warm community support. We also recognise the importance of working within the family home and provide an in-home service throughout Victoria to join in the lives of our families.

Mansfield Autism is staffed by a group of professionals who are passionate about upholding and promoting the unique culture of Mansfield Autism. We aim to enhance a client’s quality of life by building skills of independence through a strengths-based approach.
