How your donation helps. Donations over $2.00 are tax deductibe.
Due to the enormous increase in demand for services to assist people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASCs), Asperger Services Australia Ltd (ASA) opened the Asperger Centre on the north side of Brisbane in June 2012. Research among our members and callers has shown the need for a centre that provides members of the Asperger community with a safe and Asperger-friendly environment to connect with others and receive a wide range of professional support and education services.
Asperger Centre is at Unit 1, 16 Yarraman Place, Virginia
This centre provides people with Asperger's Syndrome the opportunity to reach their individual potential to benefit society by full and effective acceptance, participation and inclusion in the community.
