At Bridges for Learning we base our services on family centred practice whose purpose is to work in partnership with families. This is the gold standard in early childhood intervention.
We recognise that each child and family is unique, and that the whole family is involved in raising a child.
In order to achieve the best outcomes the whole family needs to be supported and encouraged to participate in their child’s therapy. Research demonstrates that children learn most from those who are closest to them. This means that you and your family are your child’s best and most effective teacher. We will work in partnership with you to ensure that our services reflect the concerns and priorities you have.
I don’t know how to help my child?
The rest of my family don’t understand?
Can my child’s brothers and sisters attend as well?
We can assist with:
Understanding your child’s development and individual needs
Strategies for hurdles that can occur in everyday life
Share concerns and achievements, priorities and ideas with other families
Being included in community activities such as childcare or school

Siblings can be included in all sessions at Bridges for Learning
It is hard work being a parent, and having concerns about your child adds greatly to any parent’s stress. Whatever you are going through, it is likely that there are other parents who have experienced similar feelings. You are not alone.
