The social or interest-based groups are for children, siblings, youths and adults, and they are designed to group the strength and interests of people on the spectrum so that social skills and capacity building across a range of areas can be achieved.
We provide opportunities to meet others, develop friendships and explore shared interests. There are social groups operating in various locations across various locations within NSW, Victoria and South Australia.
