Frequently Asked Questions

Who can attend Achieve South West groups?


Our groups are set up for children who require extra assistance to participate. The majority of our participants are students at Merri River School but increasingly we have students from mainstream schools attending too. 


How are the groups funded?


The vast majority of our participants are funded under the NDIS scheme, however we welcome other forms of funding. Please get in touch for further details.


What are your staffing ratios?


We operate on a 1:3 staff to student ratio but also offer 1:2 and 1:1 options if appropriate. 


How are your groups structured?


We take great care to ensure all our groups are carefully planned and structured to meet the needs of our participants. We see these groups as opportunities for students to develop their life skills, social participation, confidence and self esteem in a caring and supportive environment... but most importantly have fun!
