ABOUT THE LEARNING PROGRAM

Every year, thousands of children around Australia are treated for serious illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and cystic fibrosis. The impact of hospitalisation, medications and lengthy recovery means that many children fall behind in their education and never reach their full potential.

The Ronald McDonald Learning Program is a national program run by Ronald McDonald House Charities to assist seriously ill children catch up on their learning. It is often the first step towards normalcy for seriously ill children and their families and sends a clear message that we believe in their future.

HOW THE LEARNING PROGRAM CAN HELP YOUR CHILD

The Learning Program looks at all aspects of a child's learning by providing comprehensive assessment, therapy and tuition with qualified professionals. All services are provided free to families and schools thanks to the funding from generous supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities.

When a child applies for the Ronald McDonald Learning Program, they'll first undergo a thorough comprehensive assessment that may include; Psychometric (IQ) and Academic testing, Speech pathology and Occupational therapy. The written report of these assessments are then used to form the basis of the child’s individual educational plan.

Each program is tailored depending upon the child's needs, location and family situation. Most children will receive up to four school terms of one-on-one tuition with a qualified and registered teacher, along with speech and/or occupational therapy if required.
