Child Health Team
A multi-disciplinary team approach for children's health and development
We have a children’s therapy team of dedicated and experienced Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists and Psychologists who can assess and treat most childhood developmental concerns. They are joined by Podiatrists, Dietitians and Physiotherapists as required to provide a comprehensive team approach to our work with children and families.
