Services - The Association for Children with Disability (Tas) Inc



ACD Tas support services are available to all families across Tasmania with children and young people with disability and/or disabling conditions.

ACD Tas is proud of its family centered practice. We recognize the family as a whole and respect the family as the owners of expert knowledge and skill in relation to their child or young person with disability and their family situation.

We work to a Family Empowerment Model, a social model that focuses on strategies by which families use assistance to identify and achieve self-defined goals.

We value family difference and uniqueness and believe that a child and young person functions best within a supportive family and a supportive community.

We understand that throughout a families’ life journey that they will experience different levels of need that will require specific and timely resources, information, services and supports.

ACD Tas importantly retains independence as a family support provider by choosing not to provide direct services to children, therefore remaining free from potential conflicts of interest in service provision.
