Our group programs provide children with the opportunity to learn important independence and participation life skills.
Kids Are Kids! group programs have been developed by a team of specialist therapists and are designed to support social, emotional, intellectual and physical development in children. All group programs are run by qualified therapists in small groups for each child to receive individual support. Group programs are run on demand and parents can register their interest at any time.
The ActiveAte Group Program is designed for children and youths with Autism who would benefit from additional opportunities to increase physical activity and explore food choices in a fun and supportive group environment. After much research, our team of Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Clinical Psychologists (and with collaboration from a Dietician) have together developed this ground-breaking group program. The 8 week group program is currently provided to families free of charge thanks to funding from the Helen Leech Endowment through Perpetual’s IMPACT Philanthropy Program.
Registrations are open for the ActiveAte Group Program; this program runs throughout 2020. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9313 6566 to enquire.
