How does the KidsLink program work?

The KidsLink program comprises nine 1-hour weekly group sessions, and one 30-minute parent feedback session held at the end of the program.


Groups are made up of 6 participants, who are matched by age and personality.

 

Each session focuses on a particular topic, such as understanding different perspectives, standing up for yourself and conflict management. Topics are explored through art, discussion, and practise.

Fee: $900 per term (may be covered by NDIS for eligible participants with funding) and you may cancel after the first two weeks without financial penalty
