As part of your therapy journey your therapist we may recommend some specific therapy programs to assist in achieving your goals including:

Accessing assistive technology to improve the functioning of children can be a powerful tool to increase a child’s independence and improve their participation.

Hip helpers can be an effective tool to provide pelvic stability as well as aligning the legs under the hips to facilitate the development of hip stability and control.

Our therapists are experienced in taping for a variety of conditions (neurological and orthopaedic) to achieve improvements in fine and gross motor skills, stabilisation, posture, coordination and balance.

Serial casting is an evidence-based intervention for regaining range of movement in the lower limbs.

SPIO Suiting (wearable therapy products) provide sensory feedback and awareness.

Core stability exercises are designed to improve the strength and efficiency of core muscles including the abdominal, spinal, pelvic floor and hip muscles which work together to provide stability in stationary and moving positions.

Home programs are a way of increasing the intensity of therapy your child receives and can also be used during a break in formal therapy sessions to help strengthen new skills.

Hydrotherapy is a great way to provide a fun and engaging form of physiotherapy; making use of the natural buoyancy and the heat and resistance of water to help develop new movement skills and strength.

Support your child prior to commencing school or during school transitions to develop the skills they need to be confident and independent at school.

The use of alternative augmentative communication (AAC) strategies can support people with communication difficulties.
