We've gone Virtual !
Therapies for Kids is excited to announce that we are now offering secure Telehealth (virtual) sessions across Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Pathology to new or existing clients, as appropriate!
We have spent the first few days of our clinic closure fine-tuning how we can continue to put YOU - our patients and families - first during this challenging time. Our solution? Offering all appointments online from the safety of your home (and ours!) to allow parents to conduct therapy in their homes under the guidance of our expert therapists.
Do you feel this would be helpful and appropriate for your family or are you just looking for more information? Call us! We’re still answering the phone and we can chat more about whether this would be appropriate for your child, discuss what video therapy resources you may need, and can book an appointment for you.
Children's Therapists Australia-wide
Therapies for Kids provides Australia’s most sought-after children's therapist services through in clinic (Sydney and Riverina rooms) and in a Telehealth format. It is child-centred, specialising in treating ALL children (typical and disabled). Therapies for Kids is a trans-disciplinary practice offering paediatric services for physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech pathology. Working together across different therapies allows the team to provide a holistic methodology which has been proven to have a greater impact by helping a child in multiple ways.
Working as a team, Therapies for Kids' registered and experienced children’s therapists deliver support and services with compassion and care, using the best facilities and equipment, specifically catering to the different needs of children.
The practice is spearheaded by Debra Evans who has been practicing in Paediatric Physiotherapy for over 40 years. Deb’s unparalleled experience in paediatric physiotherapy is unsurpassed in the industry and she passes this extensive knowledge onto her dedicated team.
Therapies for Kids was born out of Deb’s passion to provide premises that are unique and family-friendly in an environment where information can be shared. This has proven to be a success with decades-long results and an international reputation.
Movement specialist for children
Paediatric Physiotherapists are movement specialists for babies, children, and adolescents. Helping children with physiotherapy is quite different to helping adults, from an anatomical, physiological, and psychological point of view.
Achievers of purpose and play
A child’s occupation is to play and learn. Some children can have difficulties with play and learning, possibly because of conditions they have been born with, perhaps an injury, or simply differences in their learning style and needs.
We are able to assess speech, language, cognitive-communication, and oral/feeding/swallowing skills to identify types of communication problems and the best way(s) to treat them.
Therapy at home
Telehealth or video-conferencing allows us to coach parents and give them the skills to deliver therapy in their home. Therapists are able to assess children and offer advice/feedback to support them to maintain their level of function if they are unable to come into the centre.

A child is not just a smaller version of an adult. Treating children, teenagers, and adolescents requires specialist knowledge about the patient's development because children’s bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are still growing, making them more susceptible to injury. In addition, there are significant differences in coordination, strength, and stamina...
