This program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.

It is run by the First Step Alliance, which includes some Australia's most respected national disability organisations:


Cerebral Palsy Australia

Deaf Children Australia 

Down Syndrome Australia 

Fragile X Association of Australia

Vision Australia


Together, we are working to give young children with a disability the best start in life. The First Steps Workshops and Webinars are just one way of doing this.
