Early Days workshops are for mothers, fathers and other family carers of children aged six years or younger who have recently been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or are going through the ASD assessment process.
About Early Days workshops
Early Days workshops:
- give you the latest evidence-based information on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) topics
- help you start building the skills you need to promote your child’s early development
- help you build a personal plan that you can put into practice at home with your own child and family.
You do Early Days workshops online, individually, in your own time. If you need to leave the workshop at any time, you can come back to where you left off.

More information: Early Days face-to-face workshops
The Early Days online workshops go with the Early Days face-to-face workshops, which are delivered by state and territory autism associations.
The face-to-face workshops give you specific information on ASD, therapies and interventions, and services. They also have lots of information to guide you through the early days of diagnosis. The online workshops give you extra information that’s specially designed to help you develop skills and strategies.
Early Days workshops were developed by organisations recognised for their expertise in autism spectrum disorder and parenting. The Parenting Research Centre coordinated the development of the workshops.
