Paediatric Therapy, Australia-wide
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. It is child-centred, specialising in treating ALL children, typical and disabled.
Working as a team, Therapies for Kids' registered and experienced paediatric therapists deliver support and services with compassion and care, using the best facilities and equipment, specifically catering to the different needs of children, through in clinic (Sydney and Riverina rooms) and via a Telehealth format.
The practice is led by Debra Evans who has been practicing Paediatric Physiotherapy for over 40 years. Deb’s experience is unsurpassed in the industry and she passes this extensive knowledge onto her dedicated team of professionals.

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.
We offer a unique, innovative and effective Intensive Therapy Program for infants through to adolescents with neuromuscular disorders and a variety of diagnoses. Intensive therapy is ideal for those looking to accelerate their progress in functional and developmental skills.
