Our services are covered by most private health insurance funds (the amount depends on your policy- please check with your insurer).

Please note that all interventions require an assessment to be completed first (unless a recent and relevant OT assessment report can be provided)- this is to ensure that best practice intervention can be provided.

 

We accept children with NDIS plans who are self managed and plan managed.
