  • Diagnosis/early intervention
  • Accessing or planning for NDIS
  • Starting kindy/pre-school
  • Moving to primary school
  • Moving to high school
  • Leaving school
  • Starting study, employment
  • Changing employment
  • Starting relationships
  • Moving out of home
  • Retiring from work
  • Preparing for illness/death of a parent
