Residential School Holiday Program

The School Holiday Program provides short term accommodation for children and young people with autism. The School Holiday Program is run at our residence in Mansfield. The focus is on a fun holiday in a structured and supportive environment. Staffing levels during these placements are matched with the needs of each individual. The School holiday program includes: community access designed to explore the beautiful natural environment of Mansfield, health and well-being activities and healthy eating and nutrition.

A 3 or 4 night placement is offered during School Holidays and occasional weekends for clients aged 3 to 16 years. Clients from anywhere in Victoria may access this program.
