Preschool Disability Support Program (PDSP)
Following extensive feedback from the sector, the department is currently working to enhance the current arrangements to support children with disability and additional needs. The department is committed to supporting all children to participate meaningfully in early childhood education and will align disability and inclusion funding and support with both Start Strong and the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
The department has released information on the 2018 Disability and Inclusion Program. This program replaces the Preschool Disability Support Program.
Below are the program guidelines for the 2017 program, which are provided for reference only.
