Therapies for Kids has been operating in Sydney since 2003. It provides Sydney’s most sought-after children’s therapist services. 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 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. 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.
