Learning Links was established in 1972 by parents concerned about the lack of appropriate education and support services to meet their children's needs.
Today, our focus is on preventing learning difficulties from causing disadvantages.
Learning Links works in collaboration with schools, early childhood settings and parents to help children with learning disabilities and difficulties.
These include conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, fine and gross motor delays and speech and language delays. The children are often anxious, have trouble communicating and interacting with others, and many have behavioral issues. In the later years, they are often challenged in literacy, numeracy and impacting their ability to complete education and participate in the community.
Early intervention for young children who experience developmental delays is critical to mitigating the risk of poor educational outcomes later in life. Learning Links is recognised as a pioneer in the area of inclusive early childhood education. At our inclusive preschool, children of all abilities learn side by side, maximising their learning abilities and wellbeing as they progress to primary school.
