A group to help the NDIS community thrive in Cairns where providers (registered or non registered) can advertise their services and supports and participants have the choice and control.
See what providers have capacity, new providers to Cairns, call out for support workers, OT's, Speechie's, or ask about recommendations on just about anything.
Share any workshops / seminars / conferences in the group as well as your services, employment opportunities etc. The group is pretty much an open forum.
Tablelands ASD Parent Support Group is a support group with the aim to provide peer support opportunities for parents and carers of children on the spectrum (with or without a diagnosis) across the Tablelands community.
We aim to achieve this goal with the guidance and consultation of parents/carers and the extended autism community.
We will be scheduling activities for the group alternating between Professional Development/Education sessions and Meet and Greet Support sessions.
Each month we will have one session in Mareeba and another in Atherton to allow parents/carers to have options in times that suit them.
For More information please contact the Every Family team on: 4091 6411
