Therapy

Fun and engaging!
Watch your child develop independence and confidence
 

Many goals can be achieved with 1:1 clinic based therapy allowing your child to participate fully in their environment. Therapy activities are designed to be fun and functional in order to help your child remain motivated and learn skills in a way that is transferable to daily life. 

Groups

Taking enquiries!
Helping your child achieve success in using newly learned skills!
 

Your child may learn wonderful new skills in a 1:1 setting but struggle to apply these skills to different environments. Groups are the perfect next step to teach generalisation, or a great addition to 1:1 therapy.
