The Autism Hub provides evidence-based information, support and advice to assist schools to actively include, retain and engage students with autism.

The Autism Hub was established in October 2015 as part of Department of Education Advancing education: an action plan for education in Queensland.

We have strong partnerships with a range of key stakeholders, including Autism Queensland, to ensure a consistent and innovative delivery of services for students with autism and their families across Queensland.

These strong connections enable us to support students, their families and educators to navigate and access the wide range of dedicated autism support services and programs offered by Government and non-government agencies.

The Autism Hub seeks opportunities to enhance service provision for students, teachers and families.

Examples of some of our innovative projects include:

We provide information and deliver professional learning that supports educators to include, retain and engage students with autism and empower parents to partner with schools in their child's education.
