As the COVID-19 health situation continues to change and as part of our response , we encourage our community to stay up to date with the advice issued by Queensland Health.
Skye was born with a genetic disorder that is so rare, she is one of a kind in the whole world. Skye has had regular Speech Therapy sessions for over two years to support her with her feeding and communication. Skye’s Dad Owen says “Skye has really exceeded all of our expectations with how she has progressed”.
Parents of children with disability can often experience challenges with their mental wellbeing and with feelings of stress, isolation or overwhelm. Counselling can support you to cope with some of these feelings and emotions. Practicing self-care is something that our counselling team always encourage and it helps to strengthen your mental wellbeing.
