Welcome to The Glenleighden School
For over thirty years The Glenleighden School has supported students with Language Disorder to make sense of the world around them and successfully access learning. Our extended school community is a very proud group of dedicated staff, students, families and friends who strongly advocate for the needs of young people who have little or no voice of their own.
The Glenleighden School aspires to support children and young people with language disorders to achieve their educational and personal potential. We do this by providing comprehensive, intensive multi-disciplinary programs through a combination of teaching and therapy for students with special needs whose primary disorder is language.
To speak without meaning…
To hear without comprehending…
To see without understanding…
Debra Creed, Principal
Imagine you are in a foreign country or on another planet! You don’t speak the language, you can’t understand what people are saying to you and you can’t make your needs known. You can hear what is being said, but no matter how hard you listen, you can’t understand and you can’t even tell someone.
That is what life is like every day for children with speech and language difficulties.
CHI.L.D. Association which The Glenleighden School is operated by provides a variety of services to support assessment and diagnosis, treatment, education and research for students and families across Queensland and Australia.
