Welcome to Circles of Learning
Circles of Learning formed to address the growing number of children faced with learning difficulties and, in response to this, have channelled a wealth of knowledge and experience into a range of practical, multi-sensory programs that assist children to overcome their challenges.
Today, twenty percent of Australia’s children experience challenges in learning, with fifteen percent of those having multiple learning difficulties. Most are labelled as having Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Hyperactivity, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Dyslexia, Autism, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and more, and usually fall within the autistic spectrum, from those marginally affected to the more seriously affected.
Circles of Learning are committed to providing a range of quality options to manage the many challenges facing families living with highly sensitive children.
