Out of Clinic
Therapies for Kids believes that to offer a holistic approach for you and your child it may at times be beneficial and/or necessary, (due to health, educational or access issues), to provide therapy services out of clinic and we will endeavour to assist with this.
Travel time and distances in Sydney are sometimes difficult to manage and coordinate. 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. All out of clinic services need to be discussed with your therapist and with reception as additional charges will apply.
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.
Therapies for Kids only offers out of clinic services to individual clients on an extended basis in exceptional circumstances.
The services that we offer out of clinic includes:
School / Preschool Visits
It is often important to discuss your childs needs and therapy goals within their educational environment. We can offer suggestions to enhance their progress at school and assist in making this environment successful for them. Often at times of transition it is important for your child to be supported as they move into another setting. We are very happy to assist with transitions so please advise your therapist when your child is moving into a new environment.
It is important that all skills learned in therapy are functional and can be used in the childs home environment. Sometimes it is necessary to provide advice for home therapy in the childs home so we can make suggestions on how to adapt the environment to suit your child or offer suggestions on how to include therapy into your daily routine.
Hospital / Clinic Visits
Many of the children who attend Therapies for Kids have multiple visits to hospitals/clinics for review and treatment. We endeavour to provide reports and letters for these visits if we know of them. However occasionally it may be easier to be present at a clinic visit or meeting with other medical personnel in order to get the best for your child. If you require this service please discuss with your therapist.
Sometimes it is important to support a child to access the most from community settings. This could involve physical access, mobility, socialisation etc. We are happy to accompany you and your child to a community setting if that is appropriate.
