Welcome Special Needs Families, Carers, Educators, Therapists and Medical Professions and thank you for visiting the Cairns Disability Network website.

The Cairns Disability Network (CDN) is a group of Education, Training, Higher Education, Employment and Community service providers who link together to improve the transitions and outcomes for people with disability.

CDN members meet each month to share news about upcoming events, resources, opportunities and information to benefit people with disability and those that support them to progress between education, training and employment, or to re-engage with training and employment from the community.

Resource guide & ideas are throughout this website for parents, carers, educators and allied health.  A couple great resource facebook groups are Resources for Special Needs and NDIS low risk AT ideas for kids

I hope no matter where you are on your journey the resources and directory in this website will be a useful guide for you.

Directory (local services and support) has around 430 providers.
My sincere apologies for any errors or omissions in these listings. Please email any updates or amendments to Heidi.
