- Australian Government
There is too many special needs children on waiting lists for early intervention. The sooner these children can go to early intervention the more chance they have of going to a main stream school and leading a normal life.
Unfortunately there is not enough special schools out there to cater for the children who so desperatly need it.
The government is just not listening.
If these children don't get the intervention they need.
I would hate to see how many will turn into young adults and need to go on a pension because they can not function in this society simply because they did'nt get the help they needed when they were first diagnosed.
We, the undersigned, call on the Australian Government to place an early intervention class at each public school, so that special needs children can get the minimum of 20 hours of schooling required so that they can eventually go to a main stream school and lead as much of a normal life as possible.
Also when they are diagnosed they don't have to be on a waiting list for more than a year. They have proven the sooner they start the better the outcome for that child.
