Early Days Workshops
Marymead Autism Centre delivers the Early Days program in the ACT. Despite these uncertain times, is working to deliver all workshops as usual. We remain committed to ensuring families still have access to our facilitators’ extensive knowledge and expertise in autism through Early Days workshop webinars and/or family telephone consultations. Thank you for your understanding at this challenging time.
The Early Days program engages with families of young children who are, or may be, on the autism spectrum, by providing them with access to supports that are not tied to NDIS funding and facilitating the opportunity to build informal peer connections.
Marymead Autism Centre has registered Early Days facilitators to run Early Days workshops. Early Days workshops are for parents, relatives and carers of children 6 years and under with an autism diagnosis or currently going through the assessment and diagnosis process.
There is no cost to attend the workshops.
"My Child and Autism" (next session TBA)

Please note that we do not have childcare available at face-to-face workshops.
