This program aims to assist sessional kindergarten program providers in supporting children with diagnosed or suspected disability to fully participate in a kindergarten program.

DET recognises six disability categories: 
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) 
- Physical Impairment (PI) 
- Hearing Impairment (HI) 
- Speech-Language Impairment (SLI) 
- Intellectual Impairment (II) 
- Vision Impairment (VI) 

Funding categories are: 
- $2,000 (Primary): Support universal access 
- $5,000 (Targeted): Support to maximise program participation and self-management 
- $8,000 (Intensive): Support to facilitate engagement in the program 

Requests for additional funding above the maximum $8,000 will be considered by the DET on a case-by-case basis, consistent with the child’s complex needs associated with one or more disability. A cap may be placed on the financial limit of the additional funding requests made by services. This cap will take into consideration the volume and value of applications made for additional funding during the funding round.
