Growing and nurturing children on the spectrum

Autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, is a highly complex condition that can have a real impact on how a person communicates, interacts and relates with the world. Around 1 in 70 Australians are somewhere on the spectrum, and each has specific, often very different, needs. That’s why having the right support in place is so important.

Through person-centred, compassionate care, our specialised autism support services in Perth are designed to give children with autism every opportunity to feel understood and connected – helping them live fully, joyfully and meaningfully.

Our Perth autism support services for children

At LifeLift, we offer a comprehensive range of NDIS and AHPRA-registered allied health services to families that qualify for funding through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). From early intervention for children to later diagnoses for adults, we provide tailored support to people living with autism and those around them.




Speech therapy for children

It’s incredibly challenging to exist in the modern world with communication difficulties, and we know how important it is for children with autism to feel understood and express themselves clearly. Our speech therapy sessions are designed to improve communication and comprehension skills in a fun and engaging way.

Occupational Therapy for children

With a little help to build independence and daily living skills, it’s amazing what can be achieved. Our occupational therapists support our Perth children living with autism, helping them develop the skills they need to participate fully in their daily lives – from self-care tasks like getting dressed to engaging in community activities.

Physiotherapy for children

Every child with autism has unique physical needs, and our physiotherapy services are tailored to provide support. Our compassionate physiotherapists work closely with children and parents to develop customised exercise and movement programs that can help improve physical capabilities, and also go a long way in boosting self-esteem and overall well-being.

Psychological therapy for children

Our psychological therapy services provide a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore their feelings, manage anxiety, and develop strategies to overcome the various challenges that can come with living with autism for families. Our therapists use a variety of approaches, including Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) techniques to foster resilience and emotional well-being ideal for children on the autism spectrum.

Dietary Support for children

Nutrition plays a hugely important role in overall health and well-being, especially for children with autism who may be quite selective or picky eaters. Our dietitians ensure every client has access to a balanced and nutritious diet, working closely with families to create personalised meal plans that accommodate sensory preferences and dietary restrictions.
