Who is Amaze?
In 1967, a group of parents who were struggling to find autism resources, set up the ‘Victorian Autistic Children’s and Adult’s Association’. It provided a central information source and supported individuals and their families. The organisation was renamed ‘Autism Victoria Inc’ in 1999 and again renamed Amaze in 2013.
Today Amaze is the peak body for people on the autism spectrum and their supporters in Victoria.
Amaze raises awareness and influences positive change for people on the autism spectrum and their families/supporters and provides independent, credible information and resources to individuals, families, professionals, government and the wider community.
VAC2016 sits within Amaze’s strategic direction outcomes for 2040 to increase opportunities for meaningful participation and contribution for people on the autism spectrum.
