Support, Information and Advice/Reference

A support, information and advice/reference service for autistic adults. By phone, email or in person, this service supports autistic adults with their concerns and questions, and provides support for everyday challenges or reference to appropriate resources. The lending library and its various resources are also available.


The Drop-In program welcomes autistic adults in our premises to explore various activities with their own materials or materials available at TUOI. It’s also an opportunity for them to chat with team members about their needs and how to find solutions and resources. This is an informal environment where connecting and sharing with other participants is also encouraged.
