What is an Online Service?

An Online Service refers to a service or support that can be accessed over the internet via video conferencing. This means that anyone who has access to a smart phone, tablet, or computer, and access to the internet can request to attend our Online Groups, Online Trainings and Online Therapy services from a location without a physical setting.

Autism SA is now providing a number of alternative service types for many of our services and supports that have traditionally been available through face-to-face sessions only. We are pleased to offer a number of these as Online services and supports.

What happens in an online appointment?

It is easy to participate in an telehealth appointment, or an online group or workshop webinar.

Once registered to attend a session, an Autism SA team member will contact you, and give you details on how to you will be able to participate. In most cases this will involve sending you a weblink and password for access to your telehealth appointment via video conferencing. If you have selected to have a phone appointment, you will receive a phone call from your Autism SA specialist at your appointment time. To ensure you get the most out of your session, please ensure you are available and prepared for your appointment at your scheduled time.
