How we're supporting Ipswich children through therapy

As a registered NDIS therapy provider, supporting children in the Ipswich area, our multi-disciplinary allied health team is here to help your child to meet their therapy goals.

Our team includes Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Speech Pathologists who have experience supporting children with disability and complex needs. Therapy can support children with a disability in so many ways.

Here are just some of the ways that our Ipswich based therapy team are working with and supporting children with disability.

Day-to-day activities – our Occupational Therapists work with children and young people to support them to participate in everyday life with more confidence and become more independent over time. Some of the daily activities we work on include dressing, bathing, transitions, toileting, mealtimes and routines.

Communication – our experienced Speech Pathologists support children and young people to communicate verbally and non-verbally. Our Ipswich based team passionately believe that every child should be supported to express their needs, wants, thoughts and emotions, to socialise, make friends and participate in family activities.  

Feeding – our Speech Pathologists also support children and young people with feeding disorders. They help children experiencing challenges with eating and/or drinking, swallowing, chewing, coughing, gagging, digesting and refusing food. 

Movement – our team of Physiotherapists support children and young people with disability to improve movement and to maintain or develop strength, flexibility and posture. We work with them to help them to participate in the physical aspects of everyday life and reach their potential.

Independence – our Ipswich allied health professionals work together as a multi-disciplinary team to build the independence of children and young people with disability. We work closely with families to reach the best outcomes for our children and young people so that over time they can become more confident and independent.
