Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016. The organisation was established by a passionate, forward-thinking group of families and supporters in 1966 to support a handful of children. We have grown to become the nation’s largest not-for-profit organisation dedicated to achieving the best outcomes with people on the autism spectrum.
