Children & Youth

Early Intervention

The early years are crucial to your child’s development and future. We can work with young children who are at risk of learning difficulties and are not reaching key milestones from an early age. We offer a full range of specialist services in a multidisciplinary team including psychologists, special educators and therapists. Our early intervention services include:

Occupational Therapy:

Helps children become independent by reviewing their play, dressing and hand skills. We also look at the child’s coordination, posture and sensory processing.
The aim is to help your child participate fully in the things they do every day and to involve parents in learning about the development of their child.

Speech Therapy:

Helps children with issues concerning speaking, language and listening skills and social interaction.

Even before talking starts, speech pathologists look at how a child communicates, and together with the family, explores way to make communicating enjoyable and rewarding.

Psychology program:

The Psychology program provides evidence-based, psychological interventions and counselling for children and families with social, emotional and behavioural issues.

Learning Links offers centre-based or home-based support provided individually or via group programs. Consultation with other services your child receives can also be provided

Pre-school:

Learning Links runs a community based preschool in Peakhurst in Sydney’s South. It is a unique inclusive program where children of all abilities participate in the same routines and play experiences. Our transdisciplinary team of staff recognise children as distinct individuals with unique strengths, interests and needs.
