The Middle Years Project

Youth Health provides Speech Pathology services to young people aged 12-24 years who are connected to the WSLHD catchment area.

The Middle Years Project recognises the “middle years” are a critical period for students as they experience physical, cognitive, social, and emotional challenges. The Middle Years Project is a partnership between NSW Department of Education, NSW Department of Communities and Justice, WSLHD, NSW Police and WentWest. The primary target group for service provision is young people who are marginalised, disadvantaged or at risk, with a particular focus on young people who are at risk of disengaging from the education system and those who have difficulty engaging and participating in their communities due to communication difficulties.
