ASELCC - Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre

ASELCC - Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre

At the Austism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre (ASELCC), our job is to ensure that young children with a diagnosis or symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder are able to access high quality early learning within a day care setting.

We also have a role in providing parents with support in the care of their children and hope to give them the opportunity to participate more fully in the community. Through our affiliations with research programs and universities, the centre has a research component which will help achieve a better understanding of ASD. 

Our service is one of six Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centres around Australia, and the only such centre in Tasmania.

The ASELCC is jointly implemented by the Australian Government's Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Department of Social Services (DSS), formally known as the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA).

The ASELCCs are an additional commitment to the Australian Government's $190 million Helping Children with Autism package.  We are operated by the StGiles Society.

Service Feedback


“Dearest Yellow Room Crew, We can’t thank you enough for the support you have provided to us and the love and care you provide. You are so invested in him and we feel so thankful to be sharing (child)’s journey with you all. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to sharing more of (child)’s achievements with you next year, most of which you are responsible for!”

“Dear Blue School, Thank you for changing our lives. You truly work magic in these walls. We could not be more grateful to each and every one of you who work with our beautiful boy. (Child) has come so far in the past year and it wouldn’t have happened without you. Our whole world altered early in the year and it was a very unfamiliar/vulnerable time for our family and your team of magicians made our journey so much easier and less terrifying."

"Knowing that your child is happy and content to be at blue school while receiving the help he needs makes all the difference and this is all because of the wonderful staff. Not to forget all the other magical people working with him including (Child) is such a blessing and you all help bring out the very best in him and have such an important positive impact on him so for that we will be forever in your debt."
