Who we are
At Xavier, we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disability and related health needs.
We help children and their families to live the best lives possible, as a family. We provide health supports such as nursing and allied health services through to supporting children in play and in their community giving them the opportunity to just be kids.
Our goal is to deliver the highest quality support and services to families who really need it. Families who are caring for children with complex disability and health needs, that require very tailored care.
Our multi-disciplinary team specialise in meeting these needs and have decades of experience to draw upon.We work with families throughout Brisbane the greater Brisbane region.
There are a number of reasons why a child might experience weakness in their hands such as low muscle tone, neuro-muscular disorders and more. Our team of occupational therapists will often work with children to help them develop strength and coordination of the tiny little muscles in their hands.
This Wednesday 17th March is Swallowing Awareness Day. Just like breathing, swallowing is a reflex and it is essential to everyday life. The theme of this year’s Swallowing Awareness Day is “Dysphagia. A difficult diagnosis to swallow!”
Confused about what health supports the NDIS will fund? We summarise the health supports that are funded by the health system and those that are funded by the NDIS.
Disability counselling provides support to people with disability and their families (this can be parents, siblings, partners or carers). Counselling can help them to address the challenges that they face individually and as a family as a result of their family member’s disability.
