Children are not just little adults. Paediatric physiotherapists and occupational therapists are specially trained to provide therapeutic intervention within the context of the developing child. Our therapists have a broad skill base with which to assess and treat the diverse needs of your child. Such needs may include:

  • musculoskeletal posture, movement, strength and endurance
  • gross and fine motor skills
  • sensory issues
  • balance and co-ordination
  • play based learning skills
  • functional activities of daily living
  • adapted or specialized equipment
  • social, cognitive and communication skills
  • motivation and emotional support

At Paediatric Physiotherapy Associates, your child’s treatment goals and outcomes are discussed with you, the family. Your important role in the treatment circle of care will be developed through education and hands-on instruction by your therapist. Older children are encouraged to be part of the treatment process where appropriate. Our therapists strive to develop a program which addresses your child’s varied needs and also welcomes the opportunity to integrate goals and strategies of other professionals who may be working with your child.
