Physiotherapy can support children and young adults with a disability to improve motor skills and to support better movement or to prevent movement problems from getting worse over time. The aim is the give children and young adults more physical independence.
At Xavier, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to expand our therapy support services to more areas across the Brisbane region. We’re working on opening our new Community Therapy Clinic in Eastern Heights, Ipswich by March 2020. Xavier therapy support can help kids with a disability in so many ways. Here’s a quick look at some of the ways.
At Xavier, we believe that every child and their family should have the opportunity to live their best life possible as a family. For families of children with complex and multiple disabilities this means providing the best quality supports and services.
Our new therapy clinics will bring occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech therapy to children and young adults with physical and multiple disabilities. In this article, we take a look how speech therapy can support children with a disability in Ipswich.
At Xavier, we’ve been providing children’s disability support services in Brisbane for over 70 years. Our nursing service for children and young adults with a disability in Brisbane is one of the ways that we continue to do this. Our team of nurses work with Brisbane kids and their families to help children with a disability and associated health conditions to enjoy a better quality of life.
Occupational therapy (OT) is sometimes thought of as a support for adults. However, in occupational therapy, “occupations” refers to the everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families and with communities to occupy time and to bring meaning and purpose to their lives.
In 2020, we will be able to provide physiotherapy support for children in the Ipswich area from our new community therapy clinic at Eastern Heights. Our experienced team of Physios can work with your child, teen or young adult to support them to participate in the physical aspects of everyday life.
Physiotherapy is one of the ways that we help kids with a disability to reach their potential, to become more independent and to achieve their goals. Physiotherapy enables children to take part in the physical aspects of everyday life to the best of their ability.
In 2020, the way in which we provide therapy support for children in Brisbane is evolving. We are expanding the locations of our Community Therapy Clinics to support children and young people in Ipswich, Logan and North Lakes with further locations to be announced throughout the year.
It’s a new year and we have lots of exciting changes happening at Xavier to better support children with physical and multiple disabilities and their families. We are expanding our Allied Health service into the Ipswich area with a community clinic based in Eastern Heights.
