We pride ourselves in providing effective, evidence-based therapy with a family-centred approach to children aged between 0-9 years of age. We are a neuroaffirming practice that embraces the strengths and uniqueness of neurodivergent children, with a focus on creating environments that support strong engagement within the home, school, and play environments.
