Traditional model of separate specialist appointments
Who is it for?
Individual Therapy is for families who have a child aged between 0 to 7 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 weekly or fortnightly session 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?
Fees for this program are linked to the NDIS Price Guide. Overall fees and charges will be individually tailored and outlined in a service agreement and will vary depending on the frequency, duration and location of the sessions.
What funding is relevant?
Participants will need to have access to one of the following funding programs:
- The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and in particular the funding Support Area of “Improved daily living”
