What do we offer?
Lifestart believes that quality early intervention makes a difference to outcomes for young children. We provide specialised supports for young children with disability or developmental delay to:
- promote each child’s learning and development; and
- improve their ability to participate in family and community life.
Lifestart uses a key worker approach. A key worker is the person you will see and talk to most. A key worker will be one of our specialist professionals and may be a:
- speech pathologist
- occupational therapist
- behaviour specialist
- social worker or psychologist
Your key worker will get to know your child and family and will work with you to achieve your goals for your child.
Your key worker can support you to develop the skills your child needs to participate in everyday life. They can help other people in your child’s life, like a preschool or school teacher, to do the same. They can support your family to make choices, set priorities, access important information and communicate with other people providing support to your child and family.
Your key worker will visit you and your child in places where you would like support. This could be home, preschool, the park, school or in the community. Lifestart supports children in their natural environments because all children learn from the everyday routines, interactions and experiences that they share with familiar people in familiar places.
