Finding a little extra support, transitioning to Prep

In Queensland, children with significant educational support needs can access support through early childhood development programs and services.

This includes children with suspected or diagnosed disability, on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, with an intellectual disability or hearing, physical, speech-language or vision impairment.

Delivery of the programs and services is coordinated locally to provide early intervention to children with special needs, to assist them in transitioning to Prep.
