Traditional model of separate specialist appointments
Who is it for?
Individual Therapy is for families who have a child aged between 0 to 8 years with difficulties in more than one area of development, who need or prefer a traditional model where they arrange separate appointments with individual professionals. It is an option for all families regardless of whether their child has a formal diagnosis.
What is it?
Individual Therapy sessions take place with a Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Early Childhood Special Educator or Psychologist, depending on the child’s needs and goals.
How does it work?
The child and their parents attend a one hour session, once a week during term time that takes place at Noah’s. The focus of the session is on individual goals specific to that type of therapy. For example, communication goals for a Speech Pathology session; sensory or fine motor goals for an Occupational Therapy session; or play skills in an Early Childhood Special Educator session.
How much do I pay?
Families pay $70 per term for this program.
What funding is relevant?
The remaining cost per term, which is $1,500, is funded by:
- Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC)
- Department of Social Services Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) and Better Start Initiative (BSI)
Children who are approved for HCWA or BSI funding can claim $1,500 per term.
There are funded places available for children who are not eligible for HCWA or BSI funding.
