Skilled & seasoned visionary Director with commercial drive + an entrepreneurial approach …
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong development condition that affects each individual differently. However, research has proven that high quality early intervention measures can make a significant difference to almost every child’s development.
With uncanny foresight, aeiou was established in Brisbane two decades ago by concerned parents. Today, it’s the largest services provider of its kind within Australia. Offering support to families whose children have been diagnosed with autism, it provides continually updated, evidence-based, early intervention programs and practical support. These are mindfully purpose-designed so that all members of each family can live their best lives.
At aeiou, children learn various life skills that encourage independence, build confidence and inspire community participation. Carers also receive support and training to empower them to become informed partners in their child’s development.
With the retirement of a key Director, a skills-specific seat has become available on this Board…
