Staying connected at school

Make choices simpler

If you care for a child who has a disability, you know how many decisions there are to make on a regular basis. Making the right choices for your child can be challenging and confusing.

A little extra support is a welcome relief at particular times in your child’s development journey – such as critical milestones like starting school or transitioning from primary to high school.

We’re here to help.

You tell us about your needs and we will work with you and your loved ones to build your support network and skills.

If you care for a child or young person with a primary diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, who has challenging behaviour and is at risk of school suspension or expulsion, we can also provide you with specialised support.

How we can help

We can help you with:

  • Developing a comprehensive plan that links behaviour support strategies for the family, at school and in the community
  • Sourcing additional behaviour support for schools and families where behaviours of concern are threatening the school placement
  • Supporting an active, collaborative approach between school, family and other specialists, including special educators, physiotherapy, occupational therapy (OT) and speech therapy
  • Access to specialist services for the family, including financial support to obtain these services
  • Advocating for you when you need extra support
  • School holiday activities
  • Social skills programs tailored to meet an individual's needs
  • Young people at risk of suspension or expulsion.
