Important information for all clients during this lockdown.
Important Information for all clients during the current COVID-19 Lockdown:
Therapies for Kids acknowledges the importance of maintaining therapeutic services to clients during the current restrictions imposed by the NSW Health Department on all residents of the greater Sydney metropolitan area.
Therapies for Kids is classified as an essential service (both health and disability service).
Therapies for Kids is endeavouring to convert clients (where this is appropriate and workable) to the Telehealth Service Delivery model. For those clients, where this is not appropriate or workable, Therapies for Kids will continue to provide in-rooms services subject to the same rules that apply to “essential worker” employees that have been gazetted by the NSW government.
This means that if you are a resident in one of the Local Government Areas (LGA’s) that are nominated as requiring essential workers to be tested every 3 days if they are to travel outside of the area, then adults attending our clinic will need to present a negative COVID test result no older than 3 days. We do not require a test for your child UNLESS they have recently been ill or present with COVID symptoms.
Clients who reside in LGA’s where the above restrictions do NOT apply, may still attend our clinic for essential therapy (where the clients condition requires on-going treatment), subject to all the other rules which apply to movement outside of your home.
Please feel at ease to call us 02 (9519 0966) if you have any concerns or for any clarification of the above.
Therapies for Kids will continue to take all necessary precautions to ensure a safe environment for you and your children and we ask that all families also abide by the above requests.

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.

Therapies for Kids is offering secure Telehealth (virtual) sessions across Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Pathology.

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...
