about US

We are an experienced collective of private therapists who have each worked in the paediatric disability community for more than 20 years.

We believe in providing goal-directed, evidence-based interventions that are fun, functional, meaningful and effective.

We take a person-centred, family-focused approach to all the services we provide.

We strive to maximise your child's potential and build capacity in every person. We can individualise services and offer therapy supports within our clinic, at home, at school, in the pool or in the wider community.

Services at our clinic in Nedlands include activity-based therapy, adaptive gaming, environmental control (ECU) for access, AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) training, LusioMATE therapy programs, and opportunities for real-world skill development through task-specific practice in our various Skillz Labs.
