Early Childhood Intervention Services
Our Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists offer a family-centred approach to help support the needs of children up to 7 years of age. We work as a team to ensure the needs of the whole child are addressed within the setting of their family and community life.
Services for children, adolescents and adults, assisting with:
- Autism diagnosis
- Speech sound difficulties
- Late talkers
- Difficulties understanding and/or using language
- Social skills (individual, pairs and group therapy)
- Voice difficulties
- Complex communication – AAC
Occupational Therapists help children to improve their ability to do everyday activities.
A child’s everyday activities include:
- Eating and drinking
- Toileting and dressing
- Learning at home, kindergarten and school
- Mastering physical skills such as running, jumping, climbing, drawing, cutting and writing
- Playing and making friends
- Participating in leisure activities and/or community groups.
We work together with children, parents and families to enable your child to be the best they can be.
We run fun and engaging groups to help build communication, motor, self-care and social skills. These small groups, run by Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists, can be very effective for boosting these essential abilities.
