Welcome! I'm also in Australia. Hopefully your appointment with the integrated doctor is helpful, but just in case... I just wanted to suggest you check out the websites for the following Aussie Biomed organisations: MINDD Foundation and Biobalance. Both have practitioner lists. These Biomed drs and allied practitioners work with a range of conditions, not only Autism. I'm told that there is a good Biomed dr in Perth - Dr C. (Given your name I am assuming you are in WA!) We see a Biomed dr in Vic who has been wonderful - my DS is happy and functional now after his run in with PANDAS. Feel free to PM me (see the top right hand corner of this page.) Good luck!
