What is a Developmental Educator?

A Developmental Educator (DE) is a multi-disciplinary disability specialist with expertise in fostering the skills, independence and quality of life of individuals with developmental or acquired disabilities and their families.

How does it work?

Our Developmental Educator will work with the participant and their family/support network to form an individualised support plan base on identified goals.

Once a plan is established the participant will have regular sessions with the Developmental Educator working towards goals. Sessions can take place across various environments including:
– School
– Community Activities (sport and recreation, volunteer or special interest groups etc.)
– Home
– Workplace
