What is the Helping Children with Autism Package?
The Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) package is an Australian Government initiative providing support for children aged 0 – 6 years with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), their families and carers.
The package covers a range of initiatives and services, including funding for therapies.
How do I apply for the Helping Children with Autism Funding?
The Autism Advisor Service at Autism Victoria/Amaze is responsible for administering the funding component of the package to eligible families of children aged 0 – 6 in Victoria.
Your Autism Advisor will be there to assist you every step of the way while you access the HCWA funding.
