Therapies for Kids
Therapies for Kids in Annandale is a trans-disciplinary practice which involves the team of experienced therapists and families and clients working together to address the needs of the child and their family.
They offer assistance for children and their families in the areas of physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and gym.
A Paediatric Physiotherapist offers early intervention for children who may have neurological and developmental delays as well as sensory impairments related to hearing and vision. Physiotherapy also helps children with biomechanical, positional and sports injuries. Some children may present with multiple issues that can be helped by seeing a Paediatric Physiotherapist.
Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) assess speech, language, cognitive-communication, and oral/feeding/swallowing skills to identify types of communication problems (articulation; fluency; voice; receptive and expressive language disorders, etc.) and the best way to treat them.
Occupational Therapists can work with children of all ages and their families, to help enhance skills necessary for their everyday life including playing, getting dressed and handwriting. Occupational therapy may also include making changes to the child’s environment such as their school or home to help the child be more independent.
They run gym classes for 0-6 year olds that are full of age appropriate activities that promote motor learning. For under 4’s you will be there every ‘step’ of the way as your child builds motor skills on the gym equipment.
Their physiotherapists facilitate each class providing caregivers confidence, knowledge and support in a safe and fun learning environment.
