What is early invention?

Early intervention services help children to increase their skills and actively take part in everyday activities. Through therapy, we will help your child to learn self-care skills, play skills, and fine and gross motor skills, so they can reach their full potential. Early childhood intervention services can reduce the amount of supports needed later in life while assisting families with learning how to best support their child and manage expectations.

Therapy in everyday activities

We integrate these therapies into everyday activities and routines from an early age because this is the best time to maximise results. By introducing and working on skill development exercises in early childhood, children and families may reduce the amount of supports they need later on in life. We work with families to give them the tools and knowledge to learn how to better support their child to achieve their goals.
