Our Services

Developmental and educational assessments highlight a child’s strengths and weaknesses, provide a diagnosis (if applicable), and provide referral to other professionals who can assist. Most importantly, we provide practical strategies and evidence-based interventions aimed at maximising your child’s potential in all areas of their lives. Assessments often include working with schools and teachers and in-school observations of the child. Please note we also assess adults for almost everything on the list below.

People living in MMM 4 to 7 are eligible for these services. The easiest way to check if you live in an area that qualifies for access to Telehealth (video conferencing therapy) services is to enter your address into the MMM interactive map available on the Australian Government Doctor Connect website.
