AEIOU Foundation will expand the reach of its leading autism early intervention services in Townsville with the construction of a new purpose-built centre at Fairfield & Co, made possible with funding from the Australian Government and Queensland governments.

The new facility, replacing an existing leased centre in Kirwan from mid-2024, will feature an additional classroom, state-of-the-art therapy rooms and a dedicated parent education room, enabling AEIOU to expand its reach and support more local children with an autism diagnosis.

The Australian Government committed $2 million to the project’s construction, and the Queensland Government dedicated a further $1 million towards the $5.6 million development. AEIOU CEO Alan Smith said private philanthropy and community fundraising has been essential, with cost-of-construction doubling in recent years.

Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Financial Services Stephen Jones, representing the Australian Government at a sod turning event on Wednesday, 12 July, said breaking ground at the site marked a significant milestone for families in Townsville.

“AEIOU plays a vital role in the community here, and it’s fantastic to support young children through this new facility,”

“It will improve AEIOU’s capacity to meet the needs of local children now and into the future, extending their reach to more children and families.”

Geon Property look forward to welcoming the AEIOU Centre to Fairfield & Co in 2024.
