About us

EDUCARE was established in 1998 by Dr Anne-Marie Youlden, Educational and Child Psychologist, to provide specialised early intervention advice for families.

Since then, the organisation has grown considerably, with the range of services provided expanding significantly to include additional developmental and mental health specialist medical services.

We believe that the intellectual, physical, emotional and social elements of our lives are critical to ensuring a happy, satisfying and healthy life.

The EDUCARE team is passionate about understanding our clients on an individual level, and developing a program that is specific to them. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach at EDUCARE!

Rather than encountering an overwhelming process, the EDUCARE approach is to provide you with a case manager who coordinates and draws on a range of medical, health and educational specialists to meet the varying needs of individuals and families.

As well as providing recommendations and strategies for improvement, we take the time to explain the reasons that lie behind our clients’ past challenges and the process required to make changes. That can often then translate into a ‘lightbulb’ moment of understanding and clarity. We don’t want to tell you what to do; instead we want to work with you.

EDUCARE is conveniently located and accessible in meeting community needs throughout Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Lower and Upper Hunter, Port Stephens, Central Coast and the Northern NSW Regions.
