Communities For Children (Murwillumbah): Ready for School

In 2006, Therapy Matters became involved in this Federal Government Initiative (FaHCSIA) with Tweed Valley Early Childhood Intervention Service and YWCA NSW. Our role in the project, together with Dr Karen Plant (Psychologist), was to build knowledge and skills in early childhood workers in the Murwillumbah area to successfully include and support children with disabilities in early childhood settings.

This project resulted in the production of an Inclusion Resource Guide and ongoing visits to centres to help early childhood workers meet the needs of children with disabilities and developmental delays in their care. This project has been highly valued by early childhood workers particularly because it involves the provision of consultancy services in children’s local, neighbourhood early childhood settings.
