Bundy Campus Home to New AEIOU Early Intervention Centre

It’s fantastic when a project comes together that combines community engagement and ‘giving back’ with real-world educational opportunities for CQUniversity students.

The AEIOU Early Intervention Centre at Bundaberg is one such project. The development, construction of which has just begun at CQUniversity’s Bundaberg campus, is funded by a Queensland Government commitment of $700,000 and will provide full-time support to 12 local families with autistic children.

The learning centre will help children with autism learn vital life skills, like the ability to communicate their needs, their wants and their feelings, and to understand and engage with people and the environment around them.

Along with this CQUniversity education students will also benefit from work placements and research collaboration opportunities. 

This is an exciting partnership for CQUni and the AEIOU foundation. The centre should be up and running by mid next year – can’t wait for a tour!
