EarlyEd offers a variety of school holiday programs for all members of the family. School holiday programs include groups and intensive individualised sessions for school aged children. Our holiday activities provide opportunities for families to all be involved in intervention and have some fun together. The whole family can develop skills that will enable them to play/practice together with their child with disability at home.
Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, school holiday programs are not currently planned

Does your child:
- Tire easily when writing or cutting?
- Have trouble with dressing for example with buttons or zippers?
