Some of our fundraisers
AEIOU Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing best practice, full-time early intervention and learning programs, individually tailored for children diagnosed with autism. Early intervention is clinically proven to give children with autism the essential life skills for education, social interaction, inclusion and reveals their real and unique potential.
The organisation was founded in 2005 by Dr James Morton AM and his wife Louise when their young son Andrew was diagnosed with autism. They discovered a lack of effective therapy and set about to find the best outcomes. Working with other parents, the first school was opened in 2005 and now has 8 centres across Queensland and 1 in South Australia.
Autism is a lifelong disorder and is more prevalent than childhood cancer and diabetes combined – there is no cure, but our program provides positive outcomes with 70% of our children transitioning into mainstream schooling.
AEIOU's early intervention evidenced based program helps create brighter futures for children with autism and their families. Our vision is to ensure every child with autism is provided with maximum opportunities to reach their full potential.
