For Children & Parents

We aim to assist children in their earlier years to overcome or adapt to physical and/or mental limitations, enabling them to participate in more independent, meaningful and fulfilling life roles. Therapy programs are designed and run by therapists specialising in child development and activities are graded to meet individual children’s needs. Sessions are developed with children in mind to ensure that they are fun, positive, achievable, engaging, stimulating and playful.
