We help babies, children and young people learn everyday functional activities

to participate in life at home, school, and in the community.

We see children are part of a family

  • Families know their children best

  • Children do best in their own environments

  • We find strategies that fit in with your everyday life

  • We form respectful, cooperative partnerships with families

  • We value Melbourne's diverse community

We are professional, playful and up to date

  • We are professional, friendly, fun, and love the work we do

  • Coordinating with your health and education services helps everyone work towards their goals

  • We are committed to life long learning. We are highly skilled and up to date. 

  • We are constantly improving

We teach the way kids learn

  • Children learn through play

  • Every achievement is celebrated

  • We apply the science behind neuroplasticity in practical strategies to optimise learning

  • We use a strengths based approach

  • The earlier the better and it's never too late! We work with babies through to young people

  • We observe carefully, adjust moment to moment, to: meet your individual learning needs; find the 'just right challenge'; optimise your chance to learn

We celebrate small steps towards participation goals

  • Participation is key

  • We start with your participation goal. Then we drill down to small details in body structure and function to help you learn functional skills

  • We support all areas of development

  • We advocate to address social, environmental, policy and institutional barriers to participation

  • Swim safer skills and behaviours are part of every aquatic physiotherapy session

  • Being active is good for everyone
