In January 2020, AEIOU Foundation for children with autism opened our new centre: AEIOU Bald Hills Centre for Autism.
On the northside of Brisbane, this $4.5 million world-class facility is a hub for autism-specific early intervention, research opportunities, specialist outreach support for families, and training for allied health and education professionals.
The AEIOU Bald Hills Centre for Autism hosts 48 placements for children with moderate to severe autism. Made possible with funding from the Australian Government, this centre doubled AEIOU’s service capacity in the region and eliminated long waitlists for families seeking intensive therapy and early intervention.
AEIOU Bald Hills features:
- AEIOU’s effective intensive autism-specific early intervention program
- Long-day care opening hours
- Purpose-designed classrooms
- Large covered outdoor play facilities
- Parents’ retreat and workshop learning opportunities
- Research facilities
