How we can help

No matter where you’re at on your therapy journey, we offer a range of services, programs and evidenced-based therapies to realise your goals.

Please note, available services and programs vary between clinics, so please check with your local clinic about their therapy services.


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

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

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

When working with children we use a family-centered model, supporting caregivers and children to develop skills, knowledge and understanding as we all work together.

Help fussy eaters and children with feeding problems enjoy a balanced, healthy diet and a positive attitude towards food.

LEGO Therapy is a ‘play based’ therapy method for children and applies the therapeutic benefits of play.

Our literacy programs help children who have difficulty reading and writing in a fun, engaging and supportive environment.

PEERS is the leading evidence-based social skills intervention program for teenagers and young adults with social challenges such as high functioning autism spectrum disorder, as well as those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression and other socio-emotional problems.

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

Facilitated by our therapists, group programs are a fun way to meet others and create connections while learning and developing skills.
