Parental and caregiver involvement in therapy is an important part of the process for achieving the best outcomes.
When working with children and adolescents we use a family centred model, supporting caregivers and children to develop skills, knowledge and understanding as we all work together. An important part of our therapy service, especially during the early intervention, is spending time with caregivers with training in new ways to support the child.
Parents and caregivers are the most important and constant people in a child’s life, so we want to equip and empower caregivers to understand the challenges their child might be experiencing and to learn how to confidently engage with, play with, and teach their child to develop skills.
Parent and caregiver support can be provided through one-on-one therapy sessions or through specific group therapy programs and parent education sessions.
