Who we are
At Xavier, we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disabilities and health needs. We recently reverted back to the name of Xavier (previously InFocus Disability Services) which better reflects our heritage.
We work with families to help them access the support and services they require to best meet the unique needs of their child living with complex health and disability 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 disabilities and health needs, that require very tailored care. Our team exclusively specialise in meeting these complex needs and have decades of experience to draw upon. We work with families throughout the greater Brisbane region.
We’re excited to announce the opening of our third Community Therapy Clinic in Chermside West. Our Community Therapy Clinics mean that we can provide physiotherapy, speech pathology and occupational therapy for children in your communities, in a fun and relaxed environment.
This Epilepsy Awareness month, our nursing team advise on what a seizure is and some strategies to help keep your child safe and minimise the risks associated with seizures.
Brain Awareness Week (11-17 Mar) aims to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. For children and young adults with conditions of the brain, awareness and compassion go such a long way to helping them enjoy life and to learn and socialise with their families and peers. In this article, we consider the daily challenges of a teenager recovering from a brain injury.
In our latest therapy blog we hear from Liz our fabulous Physio. Liz talks about how physiotherapy for children helps, what a day in her life looks like and why she loves working with Xavier kids and their families.
