Supported Independent Living Perth

A Brief Account of Short Term Accommodation for Children

As per the norms for NDIS, STA or Short Term Accommodation for children is actually, what is Respite Care for people with impairment. In other words, Short Term Accommodation for children is a genre of support service, when a young adult or a child with impairment or restrictive issues go through a short stay away from home in a specialised accommodation facility. This gives them the opportunity to make new efforts at doing new things, make new friends and learn invaluable skills to help in the way of life. It also gives the parents as well as the carers a short break or ‘respite’ from their day to day caring role.

During the stay, children with disabilities are provided with the opportunity of going through new experiences and gain as much independence as possible. In fact the short term accommodation in Perth is a learning window for the differently-abled children that will help them gain experience, get the pathway of leading a productive social life and contribute significantly to the society like any of us.
