Early Intervention

At Carson Street School, we’d like to think that we take early intervention as the opportunity to provide preparation for school, be that an integrated, semi-integrated or segregated situation.

The early essential skills of communication, hygiene and continence management, social skills, self-regulation, sharing, small group interaction, play skills, fine motor activities, plus swimming and physical education form the basis for an all round education. Staff use all modes of communication, including key word signing, and are familiar with a variety of augmentive communication devices, should they be necessary accessories for the non-verbal student.

There are two Early Intervention programs run for children under the age of 4 – My Time, and the Conductive Education – Parent and Child Program.
