Fremantle Language Development Centre (LDC) is an Independent Public School that provides high quality specialist education for Kindergarten to Year 3 students who have been identified as having a Developmental Language Disorder. We consist of a school and a state-wide Outreach service and provide targeted, intensive language and academic intervention in a supportive environment that focuses on the social, emotional and academic growth of students.
Our Fremantle LDC school is located across three sites where facilities are shared with local primary schools, enabling children from the LDC to benefit from interaction and inclusion with mainstream students.
Language Development Centres do not have local intake areas. Students are likely to be placed at a campus nearest to their residential address.
Our main campus is our Willagee site, co-located with Caralee Community School
- 24 Winnacott Street, WILLAGEE WA 6156
T: (08) 9312 4850 | E: Fremantle.LDC@education.wa.edu.au
Other campus locations:
- Bull Creek site, co-located with Bull Creek Primary School
- 32 Hardy Street, BULL CREEK WA 6149
- Beeliar site, co-located with Beeliar Primary School
- 86 The Grange, BEELIAR WA 6164
The aim is to return children to mainstream education when they demonstrate age-appropriate speech, language, social skills and the ability to participate academically.
Our Outreach Service supports mainstream primary school teachers in the South Metropolitan Region, Pilbara and West Kimberley regions with students who have speech and language delays or difficulties and:
* are enrolled in K – Year 2 and do not attend an LDC/LDS, or
* previously attended an LDC and have exited into a mainstream setting (PP-Year 4)
All our school and Outreach staff are highly skilled and engage in high quality professional learning to ensure that current research and data drives our evidence-based practices in language intervention.
