Integrated Therapy Service

Integrated Therapy Service (ITS)

The Integrated Therapy Service (ITS) is a therapeutic service for children, young people, their families and/or carers who have behavioural, emotional and/or developmental difficulties due to trauma from abuse and neglect or who are at risk of harm. A full integrated team comprises of speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and psychologists.

 

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 therapy

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.

Occupational therapy

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.  (Modified from WFOT 2012)

Psychological services

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.
