We currently do not do Paediatric NDIS services.
Patients already accessing Early Childhood Intervention services or private allied health services are not eligible for the services.
All Paediatric services require a GP or Allied Health / Nursing referral.
We utilise the ASQ (Ages and Stages Questionnaire) to facilitate our triage processes. This will be sent out to families on receipt of the referral as required. It is important that these are returned in a timely manner in order to determine the most appropriate pathway for your child.
An Adult Physiotherapist may see Paediatric patients with musculoskeletal issues requiring physiotherapy. This will be determined at triage based on the patient’s needs.
