Xavier Services

We provide a range of multi-disciplinary services for children and young people who have complex support needs
arising from a combination of physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities and their families. From therapy and
health support such as enteral feeding, to helping children with play, getting out in their community or just being a
kid. We provide the support and services to enable children and families to live the best lives possible.

Support Workers

Xavier Support Workers provide individualised support in your family home as well as helping your child to get out and about. In-home we can provide a range supports including personal care, getting ready for school or work, mealtimes and more. Whatever your child’s unique needs, we are here to help make home life easier. We can also assist with trips out, helping your child experience new things and make new friends in your community. 

Short Term Accommodation

Welcome to Xavier Place, a welcoming home-away-from-home for respite, care and support for children, teens and young adults with a disability. Xavier Place is our new purpose built, 6 bed, short term accommodation at Yeerongpilly.

Nursing

Our Nursing team will work with your family to help your child achieve a better quality of life. Our Registered Nurses provide training to all our Support Workers on the specific needs of your child.  Our goal is to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions by providing the right support and guidance. Our nurses also deliver direct care to children where the Support Worker is unable to undertake a task or to provide advice and direction for the family and worker.

Occupational Therapy

As part of our program of allied health and therapy support for children in Brisbane, we provide occupational therapy through assessment, intervention and advice on the best way to help children to develop skills and promote independence. We can help with mobility equipment, assistive technology, home and vehicle modifications and sensory regulation to help your child do more of the things they love every day. 

Physiotherapy

One of the ways that we provide therapy support for children in Brisbane is through physiotherapy. Our Physiotherapists are able to provide support to assist children to develop or maintain coordination, strength, balance, posture or muscle tone. This is done through assessment, diagnosis and treatment or exercise programs. They may also assist with advice and prescription for mobility equipment. 

Speech Therapy

Our qualified Speech Pathologists work with children to improve communication including speaking, listening and understanding language and early literacy skills through assessment, diagnosis and treatment, including alternative communication for non-verbal or unintelligible children. They also help children who have difficulties with eating, drinking and swallowing.

Counselling

We provide counselling services for the whole family to help develop and maintain meaningful family relationships and create a happy home environment. Our qualified Counsellors are here to help. 

Music Therapy

Our qualified Music Therapists can actively support your child to achieve their therapeutic goals. Music Therapy may enhance gaols around speech, cognition, motor coordination, pain management and relaxation. 

Equipment, Home and Vehicle Modifications

To help you or your child reach therapy goals and become as independent as possible, our team of Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Physiotherapists will work with you to provide advice, and prescribe equipment and modifications for your home.

Community Therapy Clinics

Our new Community Therapy Clinics operate in various locations across Brisbane and mean that our experienced team of Occupational Therapists, Physios and Speech Pathologists are able to work with children and families in your communities.
