Our first purpose-built centre, AEIOU Nathan opened in February 2010. Located on the grounds of the Griffith University Nathan campus, the centre’s construction was funded by the Australian Government as part of the Autism Early Learning and Care Centre (ASELCC) initiative, with the fitout supported by local charity partners, the WANTZ Committee.
This centre now offers AEIOU's life-changing early intervention program to 48 children with autism, employing 26 staff members. This is a warm, welcoming and energetic centre, in a leafy setting. There are four classrooms, a motor skills room and three playgrounds, including a sensory garden which the children thoroughly enjoy exploring.
Service Manager Sarah Sword has been with AEIOU for over two years, and Program Manager Ally Gilmour joined AEIOU three years ago. Sarah says she loves working at AEIOU because she can share in a crucial time in the life of the young children in her care. “At AEIOU I’m able to share and assist in such a unique and meaningful learning journey. The foundations we provide assist in developing lifelong skills and being a part of that is amazing.”
Ally says “I love seeing the children grow and develop skills that make such a large impact to the quality of their lives and also their family’s lives. Teaching a child to communicate or toilet training a child is one of the most rewarding experiences.
Opening Hours: Mon to Fri - 7am - 5pm
