Aspect are continuing to work hard to support our community. We have changed the way we do things to enable you to access our services no matter where you are.
Aspect @nywhere services are available to enable our students, clients and participants to access our evidence-informed support and services – no matter where they are.
Our new online services provide additional flexibility and reduced waitlists, in a secure environment.
Aspect schools are using a range of online platforms to continue to provide support to students both in the classroom and remotely. We use Google Classroom, Zoom, and applications such as ReadingEggs, Mathsonline as well as traditional hands-on learning methods to provide the best learning opportunities for our students.
Whitney McAuliffe, from South East Sydney School, explains how online learning works for our students.
We now have Australia’s first autism-specific Distance Education program, running out of the Aspect Hunter School.
The exciting initiative is opened to primary school-aged children on the autism spectrum in the Hunter and the surrounding region, who are either geographically isolated and don’t have access to an appropriate school program, or have disengaged from traditional education programs due to individual circumstances.
The Aspect Teletherapy Service is a therapy service delivered via video-conferencing to isolated individuals on the autism spectrum, their families and in collaboration with their local support network. The service provides timely access to autism-specific support in locations where these services may be limited or inaccessible. The Teletherapy services emphasise collaboration with and within the individual's local support team members including local educators, allied health and community support staff.
Aspect's Sarah Crook and Ashleigh Smith discuss the benefits of Teletherapy.
Aspect Assessments provide assessments for autism across the lifespan. A comprehensive assessment can identify developmental difficulties and determine what interventions, strategies and supports will assist someone to reach their potential. Our assessments also include information about an individual’s strengths, talents and interests so that support plans can be tailored to their particular goals and aspirations. We are now also performing online autism assessments.
