If your child needs extra support for learning and development there are qualified, experienced people in early intervention services who can work with you. This support is available from birth through to when your child starts school.
Most children with additional learning needs receive support from their school. But if your child has additional needs that are defined as high, staff at their school or early childhood education centre will coordinate extra services.
Support is available for your child to continue their education if they can't go to school because they're very sick or they have a severe medical condition and need support to be able to be at school safely.
