Group Therapy Programs
Group Therapy Programs are currently on hold while COVID-19 safety measures are in place.
Our Group Therapy Programs are a fun and supportive way for children to develop specific skills that they may be struggling with in their natural development.
In these programs, our experienced and engaging Allied Health Therapists, including Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists and Physiotherapists, work with a small group of children, usually aged between two and eight.
Through carefully designed play-based activities, our therapists target and strengthen the specific skills that require attention.
Each session usually runs for one hour, with longer group sessions running in the school holidays.
Please call us on 1300 224 644 to enquire about upcoming group sessions.
