Our Services

Our multidisciplinary and integrated network of educators and allied health professionals work with our partners, community and government to provide services that consider and address all aspects of life.

With more than 40 years’ experience providing high-quality education, support, and advocacy for our clients and their families across the country, we are boldly spearheading a better future for all children and young people with Language Disorder, unafraid to do things differently in the pursuit of our vision.

Through our work at Mancel College, across the education system via our School Support Services and via our Bright Door private allied health clinics, we deliver contemporary, integrated support underpinned by evidence-based research — placing our clients’ needs at the heart of everything we do. 

It’s these services which enable us to unlock new pathways that allow children and young people with Language Disorder to forge their own path for success — a path that is uniquely theirs, and which will see them connect and thrive in their communities and find their place in the world.
