Support for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), mental health & developmental disorders.
Are you feeling challenged?
Support your children to flourish both socially and as learners. We can provide expert guidance on developing the fundamentals of emotional regulation, social skills, speech & communication, healthy eating habits and daily living skills.
Family is one of the strongest forms of support and nurturing. It often represents our closest connections, even when there is tension within the relationship, the familial bond remains. Maintaining or strengthening the familial bond is imperative, as having strong family support assists with recovery/development. It allows those recovering to realise they can rely on others around them for support in tough times and reduces isolation and negative feelings.
Behavioural Management & Support
Our therapists will assist parents, educators and support people to develop and implement therapeutic strategies. These strategies can assist with coping and positive behaviours for people with complex needs.
Social skills are necessary to get along with others, to create and maintain satisfying relationships. While many of us take the ability to socialise for granted, many children and adults struggle to navigate social interactions and are often left feeling isolated and misunderstood. Social skills training provides an opportunity for individuals to practice observing and responding to social situations in a safe and supportive environment.
Anxiety, Depression or Trauma
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia*. On average one in four people will experience an anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Reaching out and getting help for anxiety early has been found to improve recovery.
Depression is a serious mental health issue affecting many Australians. While feeling low, moody or sad is part of life, some people feel these things more intensely or for extended periods. This can adversely impact physical and mental social health. Psychological treatments for depression are available to support participants in their recovery.
Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one’s ability to cope. Trauma may result from a single distressing experience or recurring events. A number of psychotherapy approaches have been designed with the treatment of trauma in mind. Our Psychologists are trained in evidence-based therapies to minimise the impact of trauma.
Counselling and Social Work
A counsellor is trained to help you or someone you know with concerns or problems such as anxiety, depression, grief or relationship difficulties. They assist by helping you to resolve your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness.
Assessment & Observation
Our therapists are able to observe, evaluate and provide feedback on approaches that could improve outcomes for participants.
Our large interdisciplinary team is able to provide assessment services and generate reports to assist in developing intervention strategies and applying for assistance from support organisations and funding bodies.
Sensory processing disorder (SPD)
SPD a neurological condition that exists when sensory signals are not organised into appropriate responses. People with SPD find it difficult to process sensory information (e.g. sound, touch and movement) from the world around them. This means that they may feel sensory input more or less intensely than other people.
Sensory integration programs can be designed and implemented with your child and their teachers to help them achieve learning success.
