Early Childhood Development Program

Benowa State School is host to the Benowa Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP). Our education programs and services support children from birth to pre-prep age who have been identified with high support needs in one or more of the following areas:
• Autism spectrum disorder
• Intellectual disability
• Physical impairment
• Speech language impairment
• Vision impairment
• Hearing impairment 
Benowa ECDP is an Education Queensland facility that provides support to families in identifying areas of strength and needs of your child. We offer a range of education services and programs that aim to enhance your child’s development, well-being and community participation.
Our children are provided with high-quality early childhood intervention education programs that are run by a qualified specialist teacher and supported by Education Queensland therapists who have a wide breadth of experience with young children with disabilities and developmental delay.
Children who access the ECDP will have an individualized program or service plan developed.  This plan is called an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and outlines the teaching focus and support that is provided for your child.
We develop a close working relationship with our families to ensure we meet children’s individual needs and support families in taking the lead in making decisions for their child and their family. We also work together with families and future schools to ensure a smooth transition for your child into full time education programs for their prep year.
The staff of Benowa ECDP extend a warm invitation to you and your family.  Please feel free to contact the Head of Student Support Services at Benowa State School for further information regarding the suitability of the program for your child.
