Communication   We support your child to use their preferred mode of communication (gesture, sounds or single words) to share their preferences and interests with the facilitators and peers. They will also have opportunities to practise following single step instructions within a group setting, which is a different environment to home.

During this program, we continue to focus on core stability & the development of your child’s independence with their mobility skills (ie rolling, crawling, walking etc), including balance, strength, endurance (stamina) and appreciation of where their body is in space and in relation to other objects/people in their environment. These skills are practiced during sessions and strategies provided for you to work on at home.
