  • Every dollar makes a difference. Support Us Now

STaR is a registered charity. We provide a range of early intervention support services for young children with disabilities and/or special learning needs and for the people who support them.

When parents realise their child’s development is unusual they have concerns. What does it mean for my child right now? What will it mean in the future? It is STaR’s vision to ensure that families get what they want, which is:

  • access to high quality services for their children and to information and support for themselves
  • opportunities for their children to reach their potential
  • acceptance of difference and inclusion of their child

At the core of our work are three interwoven strands: child and family services (of course), professional learning in best practice for early childhood practitioners, and research into what works.
