What are your child's strengths? How can we support them?
Transition to school and kinder
We can support your child's transition to kindergarten or school in a number of ways.
We can do a physiotherapy assessment, assess how your child is moving and coping, and together develop goals to help them participate as fully as possible in their day to day life at home, kinder and school.
We can assess and advise on any equipment needs.

Written reports for use in applications for inclusion support funding
We are very experienced in writing reports to support your applications for inclusion support funding in kindergarten, and for your ENQ appointment in planning transition to school
We can report on your child's background, therapy history, developmental gains and challenges, and make recommendations for supports required in the kindergarten or school environment (eg. sitting at a table, floor time, moving around the classroom, moving around the school, using the playground, participation in sport, art and other specialist programs, and excursions).
Formal assessments can be very useful to demonstrate your child's abilities and areas where they will need support.
