Out of Clinic
At Therapies for Kids we believe that every child should be provided with intervention as early and intensively as possible.
Through our holisitic approach, our team of experts can provide hands on therapy services to our clients out of clinic.
Our services are available across all disciplines; Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Language Therapy.
Out of Clinic services can include:
- Family Homes
- Community Venues
Out of Clinic benefits include:
It may at times be beneficial and/or necessary, (due to health, educational or access issues), to provide hands-on therapy services out of clinic.
Our therapists can assist with your child’s needs in an environment outside of the clinic to support their learning and development of skills within commonplace community settings. This could involve:
- Physical Access: at day-care, pre-school, parks, shopping centres
- Mobility: assisting children to use escalators, ramps, park equipment, and difficult terrain.
- Socialisation: assisting children to interact functionally with friends and family within their community.
Out of Clinic eligability:
All out of clinic services need to be discussed with your therapist to ensure your child is getting the most appropriate support based on their specific needs and developmental stage. Each request received will be assessed on a case by case basis.
An in-clinic (or Telehealth) initial assessment would be required prior to organising Out of Clinic appointments
Out of Clinic hours:
Our therapists work to a very tight and busy schedule, so out of clinic visits will be offered to make the most efficient use of the therapists’ time.
This means that an out of clinic service will only be offered when available to suit an existing timetable.
Out of Clinic costs:
Additional charges such as associated travel fees may apply for out of clinic services. Our friendly reception team can confirm costs based on your specific circumstances.
Due to NDIS policies regarding out of clinic travel, NDIS participants should be aware that out of clinic visits will
rarely be available if NDIS funding is to be used for this service.
Out of Clinic bookings:
We encourage expressing your interest for out of clinic visits with your therapists in the first instance.
If you are a new client of Therapies for Kids please contact our teams to organise an in-clinic or Telehealth appointment in the first instance.
Our friendly reception team can assist with Out of Clinic bookings and pricing.
