HCWA is a funding scheme for children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Pervasive Developmental Delay (PDD). You are eligible to access this funding through Autism Victoria if your child is between the ages of 0-6 years. Children must be approved for this funding prior to their 6th birthday and the funding can be accessed until the child’s 7th birthday.

The funding is up to $6000 per financial year (up to a total of $12,000) and is specifically for early intervention for the eligible child. You can use this funding only with registered health providers. Back to Basics Health Group is registered to provide these services to eligible children.
