SERVICES

Our multidisciplinary team gives children access to a greater number of experts where the common goal is to provide them with the support they require to build skills and connections. 

 

You can use your child's Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) NDIS funding for our service. Plan and self-managed welcome.

Our Educational Therapists are part of an early childhood multidisciplinary team creating therapeutic child-focused programs for autistic and neurodiverse children.


The sessions... 
 

  • focus first on building the relationship between the therapist and your child to create a safe and positive environment
     

  • stem from The Holistic Teacher's ISP (Individualised Support Plan) for your child that includes NDIS goals, interests, strengths, learning needs, social interaction, communication skills, supports that work well and areas of support
     

  • have science-based experiences that promote wonder and curiosity
     

  • use real-life experiences (like cooking) to develop real-life skills life 
     

  • based on your child's sensory needs
     

  • use a multisensory approach to stimulate the brain's sensory system
     

  • observe and listen to your child's behaviour to tailor the session further to their needs
     

  • engage your child in experiences that soothe anxiety and stress 

Our Art Educational Therapists aim to build life long real-life skills that are fun and meaningful.

 

The sessions...
 

  • use visual art-making to support your child in exploring rather than focusing on the end product
     

  • are designed to facilitate a supportive, socially constructive and interactive process between your child/ren and facilitator creating a safe space that reduces anxiety
     

  • use a collaborative and guided approach, children learn to negotiate, start and finish a task, take risks and follow instructions
     

  • use equipment and material that is therapeutic in nature with a focus on nature craft. This enables sensory modulation for children to regulate their sensory input and develop fine/gross motor skills
