Meet Our Team
Our clinic’s focus is on empowering the child and family to maximise the child’s potential through individualised activities that are incorporated into play. We recognise that the parents and caregivers are the experts regarding their child or young adult and consider them to be a key member of the intervention team. Assessments and intervention can be conducted in the child’s or young adult’s environment to reduce any stress and to make the services contextual to their world.
