Positive Partnerships is an Australian govenment initiative to improve education outcomes for children with autism by assisting families and school staff to work together. The website provides a number of helpful online learning modules for parents and teachers. They also offer face-to-face workshops for parents and school staff to facilitate collaboration.
The autism pages on the Raising Children Network provide lots of information for parents and carers. The site contains practical information to assist families in making decisions about therapy options including ratings of the evidence for listed approaches, costs associated with the approach and time commitment.

The website for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides information on eligibility and access to the scheme, in addition to information on how to get an NDIS plan and what this will mean for participants.
