Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre

The Margot Prior Wing of the Victorian Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre (ASELCC) provides early learning programs and specific support for children with autism aged 0 to 6 years and training and support for parents in the care of their children.

The Centre also has a strong emphasis on research and workforce training.

The Centre was established in 2010 as a collaboration between OTARC, the La Trobe University Community Children's Centre and the Royal Children's Hospital, funded by the Federal Government.
