Children and students with medical evidence that meets the above criteria and have a verified disability, are eligible for support through the Kilparrin Statewide Support Service (SSS).
Kilparrin’s SSS can be requested by teachers, medical professionals, service providers or families. Our support aims to help families (early intervention) and preschool/school staff best meet the vision and/or hearing needs of the child. This is a free service through the Department for Education and is not associated with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The Kilparrin referral form should be completed by the child's caregiver and returned with medical reports relating to their vision/hearing and additional needs (reports dated within 2 years).
