A supportive transition program The Step Up to School program is run weekly for 4-5 year old children that will be going to school the following year. The program will be created by our multidisciplinary team, including occupational therapists, early childhood teachers, special educators, speech pathologists and psychologists.
The aim of the group is for children to develop the independent, social and academic skills required for a successful transition to primary school. To achieve this, individualised goals will be set based on your areas of need for your child and developed within a group setting. The group will have a ratio of one adult to three children and will be run by an occupational therapist and early childhood teacher. NDIS funding may be utilised, depending on each individual’s plan.
Areas that may be covered include; – Motor skills – Social skills – Resilience – Phonemic Awareness – Vocabulary – Group skills. The group will be run on a Friday morning.
