South Coast Additional Needs
Learning And Consultancy Centre

South Coast Additional Needs Learning And Consultancy Centre is a privately owned, initiative to support children with additional needs and their families.

These needs may include:

  • Diagnosed disabilities
  • Vision and hearing impairments
  • Behavioural issues
  • Learning difficulties
  • Speech and language delays

SCANLACC is an initiative which believes all children have the right and ability to learn.

SCANLACC will provide families and professionals with resources and strategies to provide for children with additional needs in order for them to function effectively in our communities.

SCANNLACC aims to empower parents and professionals dealing with additional needs children and to give them the skills and confidence to provide the most appropriate programs for these children.


Service Provision
SCANLACC will consult with parents regarding the needs of their child with additional needs and co-ordinate and organise services as required. Nicole Porter, in conjunction with parents will develop and support an action plan to best provide for the needs of their child. Through consultation, parents will develop skills in their ability to address issues, interpret information and make informed decisions.

Parent Support Programs
SCANLACC will provide parents with support through the provision of professional development as well as training and support groups.

SCANLACC can be a support mechanism for parents when involved with agencies. A representative from SCANLACC can attend meetings and advocate for the best outcomes for the child and family. SCANLACC can also co-ordinate services so that service delivery is multi disciplinary rather than disconnected and separated.

Training and Support Programs
In the event where parents, schools, services require training and support programs, SCANLACC can be involved in this process by developing independence in the provision of programs for them. The outcome of this service provision, is that SCANLACC's role be only short term and that we train others to implement the programs.
