Narbethong State Special School is a specialist school catering for students with a vision impairment. We offer an Early Childhood Developmental Program (ECDP) from birth to pre-Prep and a school-age program for students with a vision impairment and intellectual impairment from Prep to Year 12. Due to our specialist programs, students travel from all over the greater Brisbane area to attend Narbethong.

Our ECDP offers two programs for students with vision impairment in two age groups which are:
  •  Playgroup - birth to three years for children and their families; and
  • Pre-Prep - three years to starting Prep.
The department’s education site has a tool which allows parent to calculate which year their child can start Prep. For parents who are interested in prep starting ages please see the prep starting age ready reckoner.

To attend Narbethong's school-age program, a student must be verified during their Prep year as having both: 

  1. intellectual impairment; and

  2. vision impairment.

If you believe your child may be eligible please contact us for further information for either ECDP or school-age programs.
