Little Links School Readiness Program

From the moment your child walks through the door, the goal is to create a learner who is able to learn and function within a group environment.

Little Links is:

Little Links

  • A school readiness program for children with developmental delays and/or disability including autism
  • suitable for kids aged 3 to 6
  • delivered in school terms Mondays to Thursdays 9 am to 3pm
  • one to one ratio in a small group setting in our Little Links Clinic in Ryde

Little Links uses evidence-based principles of ABA to teach routines and general classroom expectations helping to bridge the gap between one to one instruction and group learning environments such as Day Care or School.

Your child may develop their skills over time. A weekly evaluation tracks progress so some children  may take two plus terms to be ready for school.

How do I know Little Links will help my child?

A parent consultation and assessment are undertaken with you and your child to define your goals and understand their individual learning needs for successful group participation. A comprehensive report is sent prior to commencement of the Little Links Program.

What will my child do in a day at Little Links?

Our program focuses on pre-requisite skills a learner must have to be successful in a group learning environment including transitions and routines:

  • Group circle time – greeting classmates and group engagement with songs and stories
  • Structured work time – following your child’s personalised program to learn pre-academic skills and time on task
  • Supported play time – teaching your child how to play on their own and allowing others in their space
  • Motor break and music time – focusing on imitation,, following auditory instructions and group learning
  • Art and sensory time – practicing colouring, cutting and pasting to make a fun take home project
  • Snack time – making requests and raising hands,, daily living skills, self- care and social skills

Our learners are paired with a Behaviour Therapist supporting then 1:1 in a group setting. Homeroom app gives you updates via pictures and videos allowing you to see what your child are learning throughout the day.

Your child’s progress is evaluated weekly

Our entire team meet separately to evaluate your child’s progress during the Little Links term resulting in a  Little Links End of Term Report outlining your child’s progress against goals.
