We assess and treat a wide range of communication and feeding challenges to enable your child to flourish in their home and community environments.
The Children’s Therapy Centre offers a wealth of experience in the areas of communication and childhood feeding disorders. Communication is very complex and starts well before talking. It starts very early and is a complex integration of what babies first hear, see, smell, touch, and feel to gain reactions to and from their family and environment.
We work very closely with you, your child and the other therapists to help your child achieve best outcomes in our complex world of communication.
Some children will be able to chat in sentences, some will learn to sign, use photos, symbols, pictures or communication devices and communication apps to talk with their families, friends and teachers.
At the Children’s Therapy Centre we can assess and treat a wide range of communication and feeding skills, including:
We often work with the Occupational Therapists to determine the best options for accessing technology and assistive devices and software to facilitate communication, literacy and learning.
We work from a play based model of intervention as children learn and understand best when engaged in things they like and are relevant to their everyday lives.
