How We Work with Your Child & Family

At Northern Kids Therapy Service, we embrace your child’s diversity and use their strengths and interests to not only reach, but exceed his or her learning and developmental potential. This means that your child’s therapy program is individualized and specifically tailored to meet your child’s and family’s needs.

We work in partnership with the people that are integral to your child’s care and development. We strive to unite your family’s strengths and knowledge with our expertise in childhood development. This is why your family is central in all decisions about your child’s goals and therapy program – after all, as parents, you are the experts in your child.

In collaboration with the important people in your child’s life, we deliver therapy programs that are embedded into your child’s daily routine and everyday life. We strive to empower your child’s family, carers and educators with the knowledge and strategies to promote his or her development in a meaningful, inclusive and achievable way.
