What we provide
Yooralla has a team of specialists from different disciplines who can work together with your family and child to understand your child’s needs and deliver quality, tailored services to support them to achieve their goals.
Yooralla’s children’s therapy team can support children with autism with quality, evidence-based therapy services. Our team of therapists, consisting of physiotherapists, speech therapists / pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, nurses and teachers, will work in partnership with your child and family through your child’s early years, through school and beyond.
We deliver children's therapy services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and psychology to children in their own environments, such as at home, kindergarten or school, as well as at Yooralla services.
Yooralla also provides a broad range of assessment services, including:
- fine motor assessments
- play assessments
- sensory regulation assessments
- gross motor assessments
- speech and language assessments
- pragmatic and articulation assessments, and
- equipment prescriptions and application.
Positive Behaviour Support
Yooralla works with children presenting with behaviour of concern, and their support network, to develop strategies that build on the child’s strengths and are based on developing positive relationships, communication and coping skills; and on addressing health, environmental and other impacting factors.
Assistance with Daily Living
Yooralla provides Assistance with Daily Living support for children with developmental delay and disability in their homes and out in the community. This means we have staff that can support your child with personal care in the home or support them to engage in community activities such as visiting the park, library or a sporting event.
Yooralla can support children to participate in any recreational activities they enjoy. Our holiday programs and camps are a great opportunity for children and young people to learn, make friends and have fun in a fully supported environment. Where possible we group children together with similar needs.
Yooralla provide Support Coordination, which can assist parents to implement their child’s NDIS plan, and coordinate all of their supports. Our team is comprised of people experienced in the NDIS and can work with you to identify the best supports for child’s needs, including obtaining quotes and setting up Service Agreements.
Yooralla can support you to navigate the NDIS for your child
Yooralla can support you at any stage of your child’s NDIS journey. Our free guides can help you understand and make the most of the NDIS. You can also book a free one-on-one discussion with Yooralla if you have any questions about accessing or preparing for the NDIS, or if you need support to understand your child’s NDIS plan.
