Assistance for primary school students

It’s Gameplan’s unique approach that makes us different. During sessions, your therapist will target four areas concurrently to:

  1. Address the underlying language and learning difficulties as identified in assessment with specialist interventions;
  2. Provide primary curriculum and tutoring support so students get the help they need with tasks and assessments;
  3. Teach evidence based strategies and methodologies to prepare the student for the demands of secondary school
  4. Work on educational weaknesses through identification of individual strengths and interests

We pride ourselves on comprehensively supporting all language, learning and educational needs. Because we work across all age groups, including VCE, we understand the curriculum goals that students need to acquire at every year level. With our in-depth knowledge of secondary settings, not only do we support students with the primary curriculum, but we also ensure that they develop the skills necessary for secondary school.

We work tirelessly to get to know our clients, to develop long term relationships, to make our sessions highly engaging and to reinvigorate a love of learning. We’ll provide help and support across the student’s entire educational journey. We will be there to provide them with their Gameplan for language, learning and life.
