The early years of a child’s life are very important. They are growing quickly and have so much to learn.  Sometimes children face special challenges and need extra help to do everyday things and reach their full potential in life.

As a parent, it is natural to worry about your child’s development. You may find yourself asking questions such as:

  • Why isn’t my child talking more at their age?
  • How can I help my child have the best start at kinder or school?
  • Should my child be doing more for themselves at their age?

Everyday Independence therapists help you to find the answers to your questions and support your child’s development. Our therapists work closely with your family to provide tailored support, as much or as little as you need.

We use approaches that are known to work and use your child’s interests, strengths, and everyday routines to build their skills and independence.  As parents, you’ll be supported so you can help your child to develop their skills in everyday life.

Depending on the needs of your child and family, your team can include a speech pathologist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and behaviour support practitioner.

Our early intervention approach aims to help your child to learn and be more involved in activities through:

  • develop self-care skills such as getting dressed, feeding themselves, toileting
  • interacting with others and making friends
  • developing their communication skills
  • assistive technology and equipment to make tasks easier for your child.
