We offer the following Services
- Comprehensive assessments with detailed reports.
- Individualised therapy sessions (45 mins) at home, school, our clinic and in the community.
- Peer group sessions in our clinic: Children are paired with another child —of similar age and ability— who is working towards similar goals and can increase social skills and negotiation while building overall gross and fine motor skills.
- School and organisational training and services.
