Positive Partnerships is a national project funded by the Australian Government Department of Education through the Helping Children with Autism program.
At Positive Partnerships, we work in partnership with families, educators and communities to strengthen positive outcomes for young people on the autism spectrum. We create connections and opportunities for an inclusive culture where autistic students belong and thrive.
These resources have been developed with culturally and linguistically diverse communities to support their school-aged children on the autism spectrum.
These translated resources can assist conversations between family members and professionals working with and supporting autistic children.
Animation - What is autism?
This animation explores the social and communication styles of autistic children as well as their sensory processing needs.
We get to know the characters strengths and interests and their connections to culture and community and what helps them to learn and be independent.
It was developed in collaboration with our Autistic Advisory Group and members of many multicultural and multilingual communities.
All children on the spectrum may have some similarities. This animation explores the diversity of autism in each individual young person.
Animation - A Family Journey
This animation was made in collaboration with members of culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The story shares a father's perspective as he thinks back on his early concerns for his son and where the autism journey has taken his family. The story also highlights who and what helped them along the way.
