Description
As all children and adolescents have their own unique personality traits it is not uncommon for them to experience a few bumps along the way as they navigate through life’s challenges. 

Our vision at our Thinkahead/Reach Up Centre is to unlock your child’s true potential and work with families to build on a child’s strength and help them reach their goals.  A strong therapeutic relationship with both the child and parent coupled with evidence-based assessment and interventions is what underpins the success of achieving your child’s therapeutic goals. 

Our child and adolescent centre caters for children 0-18 years with a developmental delay or disability. We specialise in providing support in the areas of behaviour management, social and communication skills, learning/special education. What makes our service unique is that we see your child not only in our centre but also provide therapy and support in your child’s home or school setting to ensure we are more quickly able to affect meaningful change and equip them with the skills most important to you and your child.  Our services are individualised and based on your family and child’s priorities, strengths and needs. 

Our centre uses a multi disciplinary approach and our team of educational/child psychologists, social workers; behaviour management specialists and speech pathologists will work with you and your child in the one centre.

Clinicians will teach you how to create an environment that reduces the likelihood of these behaviours’ occurring and also develop a behaviour management plan that outlines a consistent way to respond to these behaviours. Multiple assessments and observations, a comprehensive plan and parent/carer training are completed to ensure a holistic approach.
