Life changing for families.

All children develop differently and sometimes, a child needs a little help to find their feet. Put the right support in place and everyone benefits, because disability or developmental delays affect the whole family.

How we can help

Our specialist, paediatric therapists at Therapy Pro for Kids work together to assess and deliver the therapy children require and the support families need. We work flexibly to provide you choice and control over the therapy your child needs and deserves. This extends to where your therapy is delivered. We can come to your home, your child’s school or childcare centre, grandma’s house, just about anywhere you need us.

Our aim is to provide your family with as much or as little support as you need. More at critical developmental stages or through big transitions, such as starting school, and less as your child and family find your feet. Our services are designed to be responsive to your child’s needs, ensuring you always have the right people around you, at the right time.

What works for you, works for us.

“I value family time personally and that influences how I work with families. I better appreciate parents’ concerns and time pressures.”

Therapy sessions with clients are fun, involving everyday activities, often with siblings, parents, carers or friends too so that ‘homework’ becomes part of everyday living rather than a chore. Read Jen’s full bio.

How we work

We will work together with you and your family, in partnership, to address your concerns about your child’s development. The depth of our team means that we have team members who have specific experience in dealing with a wide range of disabilities. Here’s just some of the areas we offer assistance.

Communication: how they express themselves and how they understand and interpret the world around them, their need to use equipment or other resources to assist in their language development and to improve their means of getting their message across and being understood, supporting parents with mealtimes and feeding concerns

Mobility: how they move, play and experience the world with their bodies, use of equipment and other aids to experience the world from different angles and platforms, support to carers to assist with handling, positioning and care

Play: how they engage with others, toys, experiences, their surroundings, increasing their access to preferred activities, improving their engagement in meaningful play and tasks and developing their sense of purpose and creativity

Making friends: how they interact with their siblings, peers and other children in their life, learning how to approach and initiate contact/communication with others, how to handle frustration and build resilience, encourage the development of social skills to support positive relationships with others

Independence and self help: how they engage in everyday tasks to increase their independence and sense of self; using every day routines to learn new skills and behaviours

Self regulation and behaviour: how they respond when feeling challenged, upset or frustrated, teaching strategies to help maintain regulation and avoid escalation behaviours, reduce instances of self harm or hurting others, supporting parents and carers to respond to their children using strategies and skills tailored to their child’s developmental age and stage

Sensory processing: how they interpret and feel the information provided to them through touch, sight, taste, sound, pressure and balance, helping children learn how to manage this information and use their preferences or aversions to increase their opportunity to engage in learning by maintaining a calm but alert state, teaching children how to ‘wind up’ or ‘wind down’

Our Objectives:

  • Focus on how to foster more joy and fun when engaging in play with peers, family members, teachers, friends and other significant people in your life
  • Strengthen relationships and the connection between parents and children
  • Provide parents with practical tools and encouragement to engage with therapy and further develop your child’s abilities
  • Help build confidence and expertise in parenting skills with your child
  • Celebrate the achievement of milestones throughout the journey
  • Develop a meaningful and genuine relationship with your family so we can support you now and into the future
