Workshops and peer support

Workshops for professionals

We run workshops for professionals on how to work effectively with families. We present to child and family workers, maternal and child health nurses, child care and kindergarten educators, teachers and education support staff across Victoria.

Topics include:

  • Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) and the NDIS for children and families
  • How to support families to advocate for their child
  • Family perspectives on disability

Peer support

Every family with a child with disability has travelled a unique journey, full of joys and challenges. Connecting with other families through peer support groups can help you feel more confident, capable and less isolated.

Peer support can help you to overcome the challenges and celebrate the joys and the gains, no matter how big or small.

ACD can help you connect to a peer support group in your local area. We work with peer support groups across Victoria to provide information and resources.
