Taking care of yourself

Young woman listens at workshop

Having a child is a stressful experience, and when a child has a diagnosis of autism, the pressure on families can be immense. Counselling can assist parents in times of stress, grief and other difficulties. The organisations listed in this section provide a range of face-to-face, phone and online counselling services. Some are specific to disability while others have a focus on counselling with all kinds of families.

The links provided are examples of counselling services that are available in each state. The list is not exhaustive and other services may be appropriate for individual families. Positive Partnerships is not responsible for the content of external sites.
