About the Fremantle LDC Outreach Service

The State-wide Speech & Language service provides valuable support to Western Australian public schools to support mainstream primary school teachers with students who have speech and language delays or difficulties and:

  • are enrolled in K to Year 2 and do not attend an LDC; or
  • previously attended an LDC and exited into a mainstream setting (with priority given to these students in Years PP to 4).

The Outreach service implements an integrated model which aims to build capacity in schools in the areas of language and early literacy development by expanding knowledge and leadership skills of staff within schools. The Fremantle LDC supports schools in the Fremantle/Cockburn, West Kimberley and Pilbara regions.

Our Role

The Fremantle LDC Outreach Service aims:

  • to educate and support school staff in the areas of speech and language. Our staff are continually researching and applying new pedagogy; keeping abreast of advances in speech, language and literacy.
  • to provide professional learning, resources and intensive oral language programs to schools; working to improve the speech and language outcomes of students.

Schools within the Fremantle LDC service area will be contacted by the Outreach service each year to offer support and professional learning. Participating schools will enter into a Service Agreement.
