  • Assess your child’s motor and overall development, using our observation skills, special measures, and specific hands-on assessment techniques
  • identify what your child is doing well, what they are having difficulty with, and why they are having difficulties, and then.
  • develop a treatment program in collaboration with you and your child, which aims to address your child’s difficulties and maximise their abilities.

Throughout the assessment there may be hands on Physiotherapy, educated about your child’s condition and how they can improve, implementation of activities and exercise to help your child’s progress. Liaison with other allied health professionals for referrals and support to providers.
