About

Service At Its Finest

AUsome Supports was created with the highest standard of care and commitment to excellence in mind. Founded by an Autistic person to meet the needs of their autistic family member and those she supported in a professional capacity. AUsome Supports is run by her neurodivergent family members and team. All who are employed here have lived experience of disability. We understand our families because this is how we live. We are the best of the best, and we have been for a number of years. Get in touch with a member of our staff to feel the AUsome Supports difference.

Mission Statement

“Organizations providing services for and serving the disability community, should be run by disabled people.  Period.  When this isn't the case ableism is running the organization as well”

Alex Dacy, WheelChair Rapunzel

 

“Autistic passions can – and do- change the world”
Yenn Purkis- Autistic advocate and author

Vision

AUsome Supports operates as a circle of supports with our participants in the centre. We believe to provide the right supports and services, our participants are at the heart of the decisions and directions we take as an organisation. All who are employed here have lived experience of disability. We understand our families because this is how we live. As a Neurodivergent affirming service, we utilise our personal experiences within the ND space and provide an adaptable approach in communication.

 

Our company values are instilled within our name.  

Authenticity

We aim to break down ableism, and we have started with addressing our own to better educate others.

That is the AUsome Supports difference.

Kylie Cox

Support Coordinator

Specialist Support Coordinator

Kylie has been an integral part of building a safe space for ND families to build connections, support each other, and be their authentic selves.

A founding member of The Experience Collectors, Kylie has received multiple awards for the support she has given families, and the innovative programs and events she has brought to the Moreton Bay Area, which then extended Nationally.

These awards include Autism Queensland, Aspect Awards and Carers Queensland.

Kylie's lived experience as an AUDHer, rocking the PDA combined with a nursing background, behaviour support experience all mean she has the medical expertise to support the personal connection our community often misses from even the most qualified of coordinators.

Kylie has been on all side of the NDIS journey, as a provider, a mother and personally, and her community connections from the advocacy she accidentally fell into, mean anyone with her as coordinator has a seemingly endless resource of different and flexible supports.

Because one size does not fit all when it comes to individualised support plans.

Family units and pediatric care are Kylie's strength areas.  See Kylie's page Kylie Reeves  Âûdhd on socials
