Family Sleep Specialist Support

Promoting children and young peoples’ sleep success really is at the foundation of all other aspects of daily life.

 

Our goal is to not only assess and provide practical solutions to sleep challenges for your child but also – helping you as parents/caretakers know how to be and what to do in response to your child's differing and sometimes distressed behaviour around sleep

 

Our Sleep Specialist Support will help guide parents in building positive sleep behaviours, independence around sleep onset, trust and creating a positive sleep environment and associations which will ensure that our young people have their foundations met to then progress in all other areas of life.

 

Family Nutrition Specialists Support

Experts agree that good family nutrition is CRUCIAL, especially during childhood years. A healthy diet kick-starts cognitive development, significantly increasing your child’s chances of leading a long, happy, and healthy life.

Neuropsychologist Assessment

During the therapeutic journey, some children and young people may require a comprehensive neuro-psychologist and diagnostic assessment, completed by a highly qualified and experienced Clinical Psychologist, to support goals across all environments; school, home, community and therapy.


The Assessment Process is tailored to a child’s specific needs and can involve:

  • Developmental History Interview with parents/caregivers

  • Initial assessment session(s)

  • School observation/liaison with teachers

  • Cognitive assessment session(s)

  • Diagnostic assessments

  • Full report and parent feedback session

  • Tailored Care Plan


Our Neuropsychology assessments provide parents/ teachers and the therapy team with a deeper level of information around the child or young persons:

  1. Psychological difficulties such as anxiety and/or depression

  2. Developmental conditions such as Autism and/or ADHD

  3. Learning Difficulties

This comprehensive assessment and information is valuable to ensuring your child’s Care Plan is harmonious across all domains and environments of learning
