How a mom with a differently abled kid started a school

L.U.C.C.A. recognises that each child is an individual. They aim to create a safe, caring and respectful multicultural environment for all their learners with challenges. Their objective is to foster a desire to learn, to boost self-confidence and to nurture the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child that can best develop the skills and character necessary, to enhance themselves and their communities, achieving success for the future.

Founded by a mother of a special needs child, L.U.C.C.A. Support & Care Centre opened its doors in May 2014. The exposure to numerous centres and facilities over the years, trying to find the “right” place for her son, Lucca, has been challenging. They have encountered so many wonderful people over this time, who have had a huge impact on Lucca’s progress but as his mother, she felt that there was always that “something” missing. Alison spent many years doing research on various approaches, learning methods, therapy interventions and communication methods available for special needs children.
