Paediatric Therapies

Paediatric Therapies

We provide integrated speech and occupational therapy services; developing communication and skills for life through play.

We support development of skills for life including: academics, self-maintenance, leisure, feeding, and social interaction, language, articulation, literacy, written language, and study skills.

It is through building the foundations of sensory integration, play, fine and gross motor skills, language, articulation, literacy and writing that together we see change.

Our practices include innovative tools and equipment to provide leading evidence based intervention. Using play as a platform for learning leads to repetition, empowerment and success in life.
