Child and Youth Services provides a range of services to support eligible young people over the age of 15 with intellectual disability and autism. We work in partnership with families and other services to ensure a coordinated approach that supports both the young person and the family. Support is provided until the young person transitions from school to employment or other post-school options. It aims to:
- Strengthen and support families in their caring role
- Promote young people's development and their participation in their communities
Services for adolescents are provided by experienced therapists and service coordination staff including.
- Speech pathologists
- Occupational therapists
- Social workers
- Developmental educators
- Service coordinators
Young people born before 1 July 2000 will become eligible to apply for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) from July 2016.
