Learning Links works in collaboration with schools, early childhood settings and parents to help children with learning disabilities and difficulties. These include conditions such as ADHD, high functioning Autism, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, fine and gross motor delays and speech and language delays.
Learning difficulties are common and affect up to 15% of children. 17% of all Australian children live in households in poverty and there is a strong correlation between financial disadvantage and learning difficulties. Ability gaps open up at an early age and tend to increase over time.
“Over the last 12 months Learning Links has been able to support children at Yates Avenue Public School and Holroyd High School with Speech Therapy programs.”
Learning Links has provided children with learning difficulties the therapeutic support they need to function successfully in the learning environment. A Speech Therapist has worked in each school for one day each week, assisting children within the classroom on a group basis and one-on-one with those who require more intensive support. Across the four school terms, over 200 sessions were conducted supporting an average of 68 children per term.
