Our Approach

We blend what you know about your child with evidence-based best practices to deliver tailored therapy solutions.

We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive at every stage of life and are committed to supporting you and your child to live on your terms.

Our mission

We enable children and their families to engage with their community in a confident and meaningful way. We do this through targeted, personalised and community-focused intervention and support. At Inner West Paediatrics, we use a three-stage approach:

Assessment

We start with a personalised assessment for each child and their family. A therapist will then work with key people in the child’s life to develop a tailored plan.

Therapy

We provide individualised and group therapy for children who experience challenges with communication and social interactions, fine and gross motor skills and sensory processing.

Coaching

Throughout the journey, our therapists apply evidence-based coaching to empower parents and carers to be the drivers of change for their children.

We blend what you know about your child with evidence-based best practices to deliver tailored therapy solutions. Parents and carers are supported by our therapists to identify and set goals collaboratively, to problem solve implementation, to upskill in developing strategies and delivery therapy in the child's everyday life.

Assessment

The assessment process is highly individualised to each child and their family. One of our speech, occupational or feeding therapists will first meet with the key people in the child's life to discuss their priorities, strengths and support needs. A tailored plan will be developed based on this information.

Following this assessment process, the therapist and family will work together to identify and document goals that are meaningful to the family, and that will guide the therapy process.
