Paediatric Physiotherapy

If your child is having trouble with anything including balance, strength or coordination, it is important you address these issues early. The expert team at Montrose will be able to provide your child with the appropriate children’s physiotherapy to focus and improve these limitations, giving your child the best possible chance of success.

Mobility Equipment

We can assist with the selection, assessment and prescription for any mobility equipment that you may need. This includes wheelchairs, walkers and standing frames.

Reaching Milestones

At Montrose, we believe that a disability shouldn’t get in the way of you living your life to the fullest. Our paediatric physiotherapy services can assist in helping children reach age-appropriate milestones such as running, hopping and riding a bike.

Training Programs

We can provide education and training for parents, guardians, carers, support workers and educational staff. This may relate to a client’s specific needs or condition and can be provided in home, community and school settings. We also offer advice on how you can physically assist a child or young person who has a disability or mobility impairment.

Therapy Assistants

You may need additional, intensive support to achieve a specific goal.  At Montrose we can help you with this through our Therapy Assistant service.

Your Montrose therapy programs can be supported by a Therapy Assistant under the supervision of a Speech Pathologist, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist.

Your Montrose therapist will design a program that targets specific goals to be delivered by your Therapy Assistant. This could involve intensive focus on an important goal, ongoing practice to achieve an outcome or resource development.

Therapy Assistant programs usually include 6-10 sessions and case notes will be completed following each session by the Therapy Assistant.

In some cases, programs can be developed for delivery by your own Disability Support Worker. This has the same benefits as delivery by a Montrose Therapy Assistant but can allow delivery at home or in the community, and as part of your existing support plan.

Find out more about Therapy Assistants here.

Availability

NDIS Physiotherapy for children with a disability is available via TeleTherapy and at the following Montrose Centres. Additional funding options are available. 

You can also see clinic locations here.

Winnie’s amazing journey

Like many little girls, three-year-old Winnie loves barbie dolls, going to kindy and playing with her sister, Eden (5).
