Welcome to the West
Exciting times here at bestchance, we are thrilled to announce our newest Early Childhood Intervention location in Footscray. The brand new therapy clinic opened in March this year and offers specialised support and services for infants and young children with developmental delays or disabilities.
The Footscray therapy team, pictured (left-right) are Rosalyn Wong (Psychologist), Briana Petrocco (Speech Pathologist) and Angela Ross (Occupational Therapist). They have been very busy setting up the new space and have been excited to share this with the children and families they work with.
