How we help
Our Integrated Therapy teams work together and use their combined skills to look at different aspects of the development and general functioning of each child and their family, including the role of their relationships and experiences.
Speech Pathologists help with communication, language and speech skills. This includes how children and young people understand and use language, and the impact that any difficulties may have upon relationships, learning and emotional adjustment.
The aim of Occupational therapy is to enable children and young people to participate in the activities of everyday life that bring meaning and purpose to them. These include movement skills, play skills, and many of the skills needed for school readiness. Occupational therapists work with children, young people, their families and their communities to enhance their ability to engage in the activities that they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the activities or the environment to allow for better engagement and participation.

Psychologists assess and support children and families with concerns about general development and learning, social and emotional skills, behavioural difficulties and relationships. Psychologists can work with children, young people, their families, and other important adults in their lives (e.g., schools), to manage and respond to traumatic experiences.
