Autism Asperger ACT Inc (AAACT) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation partly funded by Commonwealth and ACT Government grants who provide information and practical support to people involved in the autism community. AAACT aims to be an active voice in promoting and developing improved service provision to meet the specific needs of people who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Autism Asperger ACT approached Praxis Interactive early in 2014 with a desire to replace their aging website with a more modern equivalent. Praxis developed a fresh new design with a responsive template to cater for smartphones and tablets, and deployed the website using Praxis CMS.
In addition to regular content management, an event calendar and news archive were included, along with widgets for social networking. A publications management module was developed to allow AAACT to easily add/edit available publications, and also drap-and-drop functionality for managing sponsors in the prominent footer branding area was created.
The new AAACT website provides a wide range of useful information for educators, employers, carers and the families of people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and represents a valuable resource for the local ASD community.
