Being a teenager on the autism spectrum or parenting a teenager on the spectrum can be challenging, confusing and distressing. It can be difficult to know which are the right choices, where to go, and who to see. Whilst the team at Minds and Hearts are specialized in autism spectrum conditions (ASC), they also have considerable knowledge, skill and experience in typical adolescent development and a whole range of adolescent, parenting and family issues. Our team members are well-placed to offer guidance, assistance and support across a broad range of issues, and can incorporate their specialist knowledge of ASC to many unique situations. At Minds & Hearts we follow best practice guidelines and not only keep up with the research on ASC, but contribute to it also.  To discover the broad range of clinical services (for e.g., diagnostic assessments, ongoing therapy) we offer, click here: What We Do

Clinical knowledge and research indicates that Group Therapy can be very helpful for adolescents on the autism spectrum. We are only offer a limited number of groups in 2016 

For professionals interested in further training in autism spectrum disorders in adolescents we offer 2 intensive workshops: Master Class for Children and Teens with ASC in New Zealand. We are also offering the Master Class for Adults and Older Adolescents with ASC in Perth. Each workshop is run by specialists in ASD, focuses on diagnosis and treatment, and provides up-to-date information to inform practice, skill demonstration, and opportunity for questions.
