Your Child's Therapy Team

Your Child's Therapy Team ensures a comprehensive approach to your infant child's development.

We recognise that each child and family is unique. Some children need therapy across a range of developmental areas. With Child and Youth Services your child has access to a transdisciplinary team of therapists through our comprehensive Early Intervention Service, including:

Transdisciplinary intervention is a best-practice and evidence-based way of providing therapy to babies, toddlers and young children with:

  • Developmental delay
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Autism spectrum disorders

A lead therapist will work with you to: 

  • Identify goals based on your child's development and your family's priorities
  • Work in partnership with you to achieve the goals you set for your child
  • Coordinate the other therapists and support services who work with your child
  • Review your child's progress and respond to changing needs

This approach is increasingly recognised as best practice to support children and young people with developmental delays and their families. You can read more in the NDIA fact sheet about transdisciplinary services for children.
