Group programs

lifestart title wave

Lifestart run a range of group programs to help you and your child or young person work towards their goals. Our specialised groups provide great opportunities for children, young people and parents to learn together. 

Why groups?

You are not alone

Group programs allow you to meet and connect with other parents who are on a similar journey with their children. You can learn new tips and ideas from other parents and share your experience with each other.

Individualised and effective

All of our group programs are evidence based, engaging and fun! Our groups are interactive and include an individualised plan so that you and your child get the right support to achieve their goals.  

Save time and money

Many of our group programs are offered online so that you can join and learn from anywhere in Australia. Groups can be easier to fit into your busy schedule and allow you to focus on learning new practical skills that will help your child in their day-to-day life. They are also a cost-effective option with the same high-quality individualised supports. 

Meeting new kids and making friends

Group programs give your child a new place to meet and interact with other children and work on new goals in a way that isn’t possible in individual therapy.  Our expert group facilitators will give your child the support they need to learn alongside other children.
