The impact of COVID-19 is being felt by everyone throughout our community.

Kids Are Kids! is constantly monitoring the evolving situation in relation to the impact COVID-19 is having on the community and the implications for service delivery.

We will be guided by directives from Health Department, Department of Communities, Education Department, State and Federal Governments.

Kids Are Kids! is committed to  protecting you and your families, our staff and the community at large.

Business as usual

We are continuing to provide services at the centre and in the community at this stage with additional precautions. We recognise the importance of continuity of care and providing support to you and your family during this challenging time. We have increased hygiene protocols across all our services.

These include;

  • Staff washing hands prior to session and between sessions
  • All equipment being sanitised before and after use
  • Use of families toys in home environment where possible
  • On arrival at session requiring all clients to wash/sanitise hands before commencing session
  • Observe social distancing precautions where possible
  • Staff will not be touching children’s face or mouth
  • Cancelling any session where staff are seeing any signs of flu or cold like symptoms
  • Sensory Xploration Hub will be closed for services until further notice

Sessions

If you have a current appointment with a therapist and you or your child have been overseas in the last 14 days, in proximity to someone who has confirmed COVID-19 in the last 14 days or experiencing flu or cold like symptoms  please contact our office to reschedule. As an additional protective measure all clients will be contacted by telephone from our administration team within 24 hours of your appointment to confirm there is no additional risk. If you are unable to attend face to face appointments we are currently in the process of putting alternative formats in place such as phone or skype sessions. Please discuss this with your therapist.

We have ceased all whole of staff group meetings, group programs, fundraising events such as our quiz night. We are taking all action necessary to adhere to social distancing recommendations.

These are unprecedented circumstances and we are in a constantly changing environment. We encourage you to speak to your therapist on how this impacts on your individual services and plan together how to achieve your therapeutic goals through this challenging time.

Welcome to Kids Are Kids!

For the past 23 years we’ve been helping WA families just like yours.

At Kids Are Kids! Therapy and Education Centre we understand your child’s needs and we share your commitment to help them reach their full potential.

Our family-centred approach enables your family and our therapists to work together to achieve the best results for your child. Visits can be arranged to suit your needs: in your home, at our centre, at your child’s school or childcare centre.

Our dedicated team of therapists share the joy of seeing your child achieve real progress in all facets of their development: speech, language and communication, independence skills, emotions and social skills, learning, attention and behaviour, fine motor and handwriting, sensory avoidance/seeking, balance and co-ordination, diagnosis assessments.
