As featured in:

Our program, 'inTune Families™', is the first of its kind, guiding families through 6 modules, delivered online, exploring autistic family life from an autistic perspective. inTune Families is 100% aligned with the neurodiversity paradigm and is 100% designed by Autism. It takes families on a journey of rebuilding, restructuring and reconnecting with each other, in order to create a perfectly unconventional, joyous life for the extraordinary family.

Kristy Forbes is an Australian based autism & neurodiversity support specialist

with experience working with clients from all over the world.

This includes neurodivergent people and their families, and professionals who wish to support them, such as Educators, Psychologists, Paediatricians, allied health professionals, support workers and integration aides.

Her work is informed by her extensive professional experience as an educator (Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary teaching), as an integration aide to children with social, emotional and behavioural challenges, and as a childhood behavioural and family specialist.

Her most valuable insights, however, come from lived experience.

Kristy is autistic herself, and diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA).


More info on Kristy

"I truly hope that we are now moving towards a different time when parents can feel empowered and have access to CRUCIAL information like you are presenting to us now Kristy. It is truly life changing and it MUST find its way to be heard!"

"Helpful? That doesn't even BEGIN to articulate how I have found these modules. Bloody fantastic information and so well presented."

"It is so great to hear this from an autistic perspective, rather than so called 'experts' with their various theories about why autistic people experience the world in the ways they do. I have been living this journey with my son for 16 years but listening to these modules has taken me right back to the beginning and I feel that I am finally REALLY learning about autism."

It's wonderful to see an autistic persons understanding of autism. It's like she's inside the crystal chandelier with its reflections and refractions and outside of it simultaneously. Thanks so much for your studies and passion.."

The realness and presence is so strong that even though this is only an online-experience, she is the most valuable guidance on this experience I am having as a newly diagnosed asperger-mother to asperger girls. Thank you is not enough."

I truly appreciate all that you are and all that you’re doing by educating and advocating! It’s amazing how one’s thinking and change of mindset can make such a huge difference. "
