ABILITY Centre will be able to improve the way it delivers therapy and support to children with disabilities after it opened its new early intervention centre in Coolbinia last week.

Disability Services Minister Helen Morton officially opened the upgraded centre at the Sir David Brand Centre.

New video teleconference facilities have been installed to support people in regional areas.

An interactive floor projection called Magic Carpet also features in the centre, a system that enables users to engage with games and images by moving on or over the projected surface.

Ability Centre’s early intervention service currently caters for 190 children aged up to eight years and their families.
