The Therapy Program consists of two practices: a Therapy Clinic and the Home Visiting Project
We aim to maximise the potential of each child we work with through the provision of speech and occupational therapy to children with delays or a disability. The impact of poor cognitive development in the first 1000 days is well documented. Through occupational therapy, speech therapy and care-giver education on child development, we ensure improved outcomes in learning and overall development.
We offer free occupational therapy and speech therapy to all children with an identified delay or disability, who live in children’s homes. Many orphaned and vulnerable children are placed in safe care at various independent children’s homes, sometimes due to social and economic circumstances. In most cases these children remain in children’s homes until age 18 years. Our early identification and intervention approach means they will have opportunities to learn and develop through those first 1000 days. This has a lasting effect once the demands increase by school going age.
