Helpline enquiries cover a range of areas, such as information about assessment, strategies to support the child/adolescent at home, tutors who specialise in learning difficulties. We provide contact details for a range of specialists such as paediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists. We respond to enquiries about support groups in the area, classroom accommodations, understanding a diagnosis, and provide help with associated issues of behaviour, bullying, social skills, school selections and more.
We also address issues related to a broad range of diagnoses including ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, ODD/CD, Specific Learning Disorders (eg. Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia), Reading Difficulties, Tourette Syndrome, and Developmental Language Disorder. Although we are NSW based, we do receive enquiries from all over Australia as other states do not have a central organisation such as the LDC.
