Innovation & Technologies

Children’s Therapy Centre promotes awareness of and accessibility to assist technology for children with disabilities. 

Assistive technology, along with our individualised and engaging guidance, can be used for communication, mobility, play and learning.  Our therapists work with children and families to carefully assess, select and use appropriate devices in the child’s home, play and school environments.  We also monitor the appropriateness and effectiveness of assistive technologies in achieving the child’s goals and ensure they are being appropriately used.

We can provide you with information on types of modifications required for vehicles.  The Vehicle Options Subsidy Scheme (VOSS) offers subsidies to assist people with a disability to buy and modify private vehicles.
