Growing the Autism Library
In 2010, we launched the 1000 Books Campaign, aiming to raise enough funds to purchase 1000 new resources for the Autism Library, at our office in Carlton. This is a very important source of information to support everyone affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
We have resources for individuals, families and professionals, for all age groups, for schools, for university students, and for anyone needing a good resource – and it’s all in one place and easy to access.
We are delighted to report that we have now reached our goal many new resources have already been purchased and additional resources are currently being sourced and added to the library.
We have had a wonderful response from individuals, families, fundraising groups and organisations. We would like to thank the following groups and individuals for their generous donations towards the 1000 Books Campaign:
