They may have never been in a group setting before, or may struggle to be actively involved in group activities, play with peers or follow group routines.

This is a great first step for kids and their parents to manage what can be stressful time when they are away from each other.

Just like our Little Links Program our learners are paired with a Behaviour Therapist supporting them 1:1 in a group setting but in shorter sessions allowing them to build capacity for longer periods of social interaction without a parent being present.

Using evidence-based principles of ABA our programming focus will be on teaching foundational skills such as group participation, routine transitions, playing with peers and following group instruction.

How do I know Little Links will help my child?

Our parent consultation and child assessment will assess your child’s suitability for either the Early Learner Program or the full day Little Links school readiness Program. A comprehensive report with recommendations will be discussed with you and is sent prior to enrolment.

What will my child do in a Little Links Early Learner Program?

Our program focuses on pre-requisite skills a learner must have to be successful in a group.
