We are a team of highly qualified and dedicated paediatric professionals, who provide therapy and support for children and families 0-15 years. We have a proven history in providing high quality services and assistance for families in the Southern Highlands since 1986.
The team at Bridges for Learning believes that every child and family is unique. We are committed to supporting each family to develop their skills and understanding of their child’s needs, using practical suggestions for everyday situations. We aim to work alongside each child to facilitate their inclusion in all aspects of family and community life.
Current evidence suggests that the most effective way to work with families, in helping their child to learn and develop is to have a key worker or single point of contact for each family. The key worker works in partnership with your family to develop a plan that supports your child’s growth and development while also considering the overall needs of the while family. Your key worker consults with the rest of the team to make sure you and your child are benefiting from the skills of the wider team.
