Learning Links’ two-day school holiday programs provide evidence-based support for children aged 4-16 years with social, emotional and communication challenges. Children are empowered to explore their emotions, problem-solve and communicate their ideas in a fun and safe small group environment.
Before starting the program, there will be an initial screening interview so we can understand your child’s individual strengths and needs, to determine whether the program will support their goals.
Children then attend two small-group sessions, facilitated by a Learning Links psychologist, with a maximum of 6 children per group. Each session runs for 2.5 hours.
Programs are currently fun at our Bella Vista and Peakhurst Learning Centres.
All groups cost $395.00 per child for two sessions.
