ReACT Groups Information

ReACT Groups

Regional Autism Co-ordination Groups (ReACT) operate in each Victorian region. Members of the ReACTs are people working within a specific sector with young children with autism and their families. For example, one Preschool Field Officer may represent preschool staff in the region. There is also parent representation on each ReACT.

Each ReACT meets regularly to identify and respond to autism specific training and consultation needs. Sub-groups work on specific issues (e.g. transition to school) and develop regional training materials. ReACTs have also developed regional action plans that look at a range of broader issues such as developing service directories, links with paediatricians and information for GPs.
