The Autism NT office is staffed by executive officer Merryn Affleck who is the parent of three children with her eldest child, Sam, being diagnosed with autism. She attended the ANU in Canberra and majored in psychology. She then earned her Grad Dip Ed from the Canberra College of Advanced Education with the intention of becoming a teacher of children with autism. Merryn then moved to the US in 1985 until July, 2012, when she finally moved back home to Australia and to Autism NT in Darwin. Autism NT will be holding a series of fundraising and awareness-raising activities throughout the Northern Territory this month. Included in these activities are: Light it up Blue Today, April 2, where anyone can show their support for autism and autism awareness by either lighting up a blue light, wearing a blue shirt, dying your hair blue.
