How your donation would help children like Brodie
4-year-old Brodie is impacted by a developmental vulnerability which affects his ability to engage in the learning environment and negatively influences his learning outcome. The Australian Early Development Index indicates that approximately 25% of Gold Coast children are commencing school with developmental vulnerability.
Brodie was the focus for this particular research project which aimed to find an improved way of providing multi-disciplinary care for children with developmental vulnerability.The research program included ongoing support for Brodie plus support and encouragement to Brodie’s parents. All of which served to maximise his learning opportunities and improve his educational outcomes.
The findings showed that by intervening earlier and working effectively with families and local organisations supported Brodie’s development prior to school entry to significantly influence the health and wellbeing of his entry to school life.
Your gift, no matter how large or small really will make all the difference to Brodie and many pre-school aged children like him.
