Careers with Splash Therapy


We are eager to continue to expand an encouraging and cooperative team to support the wonderful families we work with to achieve their goals. 


Psychologists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and therapy assistants have important roles to play in facilitating a child's participation within their family, educational and community settings. 


We see babies, children and young people in aquatic and community based settings across Melbourne, within a very flexible working environment.
