Awareness, Acceptance + Support Autism 2023

Join us at Orange City Library for a conversation about autism with one of the co-authors of The Australian Autism Handbook Seana Smith, and Clinical Psychologist Chloe Weekes.

Inclusive, comprehensive and compassionate, The Australian Autism Handbook offers support and guidance to families on their journey from early signs and symptoms of Autism to diagnosis, intervention programs, schooling, issues such as eating, sleeping and toilet training, and navigating the medical maze.

This new Autism Handbook edition has integrated the many changes arising since its last publication, including changes in the language of autism, diagnoses, society, culture and agency. It has a chapter dedicated to girls, advice from autistic adults as well as getting started with the NDIS.

The authors Benison O’Reilly and Seana Smith are professional writers who both have children with autism, and their first-hand experience and research provides an indispensable one-stop manual for all Australian parents on raising a child on the autism spectrum.

Australian Autism Handbook launch takes place at Orange City Library on Wednesday 5th April from 5.30pm – 7pm. Please book your place online or call us on 6393 8132. The event is supported by Collins Booksellers.
