An estimated one in 100 people are living with autism; a lifelong developmental condition that affects the way an individual relates to his or her environment and their interaction with other people.

Early diagnosis of developmental issues is important for children and their families. Tailored support programs and management plans can help a child with communication skills, social interactions and behaviours. Our therapists help children to thrive and reach their physical, social, language and cognitive goals, setting them up with essential skills for a happier future.

We assist children aged 0-12 years with developmental delays and disabilities, such as austism spectrum disorder, global developmental delay and Down syndrome. Our Early Intervention team offers Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Paediatrics and Physiotherapy. Our programs are delivered in our centre, in educational environments and in your home.

How much does it cost?

Financial support may be available for your child and family. We will help to find out if you are eligible for funding.

Early diagnosis of developmental disabilites can offer access to government funding entitlements and services. We are a registered, approved provider of Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) and Better Start. We are are also set to welcome The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rollout across Nillumbik from July 2016.

You can also use a fee for service option, which allows you to pay directly for the services you use. This can be used to access services in addition to the ones you may receive through funding. You may be eligible health insurance or Medicare.
