As a services for students with Autism endorsed by the Department of Education,

the Accelerated Learning Centre for Autism (ALCA) promotes specialist programs for

kindergarten and/or pre-primary students. The ALCA is located at Heathridge Primary

School. The ALCA provides an alternative to mainstream Kindergarten/Pre-primary

for some students. The purpose of the program is to use intensive teaching strategies

to facilitate accelerated learning outcomes so that the student has greater skills for

mainstream participation. A focus is also on the development of appropriate classroom

behaviours to facilitate maximum participation and independence.
