We can provide a uniquely tailored programme to your child based on their needs.

We are also able to work with the multidisciplinary team to provide holistic therapy for children with more complex disabilities, as well as communicate with NDIS planners and provide NDIS reports where required.
We accept parent self-referrals, referrals from paediatricians, community health nurses, other allied health professionals, general practitioners and those with NDIS plans.
