Each Australian state and territory has publicly funded ASD diagnosis services for children with autism spectrum disorder.  You won’t have to pay, but you might have to go on a waiting list. Check the information below to fund funded assessment and diagnosis services in your area.

ASD diagnosis: while you’re waiting

If you’re put on a waiting list for assessment by ASD diagnosis services, it’s important not to see this as a period when nothing happens. If you can, look for other options that help you get an assessment sooner. 

Our Autism Services Pathfinder can show you all the options for diagnosis. Some services will let you start programs and therapies without a diagnosis.

The table below shows government-funded services in your area. There will also be private services available, which will have some out-of-pocket expenses.
