New Learning Links centre supports the growing needs of children with learning difficulties

Learning Links Liverpool has moved. Now located on the north side of Macquarie Street, Liverpool, the new Learning Links Centre provides the capacity to accommodate the growing needs of children with learning difficulties and disabilities in the area.

Learning Links has had a presence in South West Sydney for many years with its operations commencing in Liverpool in 2015. Since then, we have seen a growing trend and demand for an array of specialist intervention services to support families and their children, said Ms Birgitte Maibom, Learning Links CEO.

“In order to assist the varied needs of local families, it was necessary to move to a larger site to deliver our extensive range of specialised services.

“Learning Links supports children with learning difficulties and disabilities including conditions such as ADHD, high functioning Autism, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, fine and gross motor delays and speech and language delays. These children are often anxious, have trouble communicating and interacting with others, and many have behavioural issues. Early intervention for young children who experience developmental delays is critical to mitigate the risk of poor educational outcomes later in life.

“Our new Liverpool centre includes seven consultation rooms to support literacy and numeracy, speech therapy, assessments, counselling, psychology assessments and group programs including social skills. These programs are delivered by our highly qualified professionals who also provide these support services in many local schools.

“Learning Links’ focus is about empowering children to thrive and succeed no matter their ability, this means providing children with that extra bit of help, so they can reach their full potential. Our vision is to support a community where learning difficulties are no longer a barrier to a fulfilling life,” said Ms Birgitte Maibom, Learning Links CEO.

Learning Links is an NDIS provider and provides specialist intervention services to support children with learning difficulties and disabilities. Services include speech therapy, counselling, psychology assessments and educational support. For more information about Learning Links visit www.learninglinks.org.au or contact us on 8525 8222.

Learning Links is a not-for-profit charitable organisation established in 1972 by parents concerned about the lack of appropriate education and support services for children with learning difficulties. Learning Links works with these children, their families and schools offering tailored programs and services to improve the children’s learning, wellbeing and participation helping them reach their full potential.

Learning Links Liverpool is now located at 54-56 Macquarie Street (North), Liverpool. Convenient and easy parking available. Open Monday 9-6pm to Saturday 9-3pm
