Just thought I'd compile a list of places to go to for support/help/advice in regards to children with disabilities. This is just a general list, but if anyone needs anything specific (downs syndrome, epilepsy, etc etc) just let me know. Im more than happy to help find out any information you need to know

Department of Human Services Victoria

Association for Children with a Disability


Novita Children’s Services help for children with physical disabilities

Can we add Siblings Australia ?

a wonderful organisation more focussed towards the parents and siblings of children/adults with a disability - help and support for those wonderful hardworking souls who often get overlooked in their own quest to help their beautiful disabled children
