At the ASELCC Burnie Hub, we have three classrooms, Red Room, Yellow Room and Blue Room.
While there is some exceptions, our red room for children under 3 years, and yellow and blue rooms are for children aged from 3 years.
Children are placed in yellow or blue room according to their current stage of development and the main goals they are working on.
Minimum Attendance for Intervention Intensity
We have a minimum attendance of 2 days per week.
The most reliable studies suggest children with ASD need anywhere between 15 and 40 hours of therapy each week to make the best possible outcomes.
A 2 day minimum attendance ensures that children have access to early intervention at closer to the recommended levels.
In exceptional circumstances we will consider a one day per week enrolment, please discuss your situation with our Centre Manager.
Each day the ASELCC Burnie Centre has the same timetable, with formal learning between 9am and 2pm each day.
This helps the children feel safe within a routine, and allows staff to plan curriculum to maximise learning opportunities.
There is wide scope for flexibility for children rest times and toilet training.

What to pack
On your child’s days at the centre, please pack the following clearly labelled items:
- Lunch box and water bottle. Make sure there is enough food for your child’s hungriest day.
- Full change of clothes, with options for hot or cool weather. Children may get wet or dirty through the day.
- Any medications they require, with pharmacy label affixed.
- Any items required for toileting, such as nappies or a change/s of underwear.
- Sun hat with a wide brim.
- Any comfort items or sensory supports that help your child feel safe, such as a teddy, or chew toys.
- Any communication supports such as a PECS or PODD folder, iPad, or similar.
When you arrive
When you arrive please sign your child in on our electronic sign-in kiosk, help your child find where to put their bag, and place their lunch and drink into the marked tubs.
Their lunch will be stored in a fridge throughout the day. Then help your child to join the group in the purple room (main room), at group time or in their classroom.
Once your child is settled with a staff member, you can say goodbye.
