Other Services

Mobile Sessions – We come to you!

Sometimes the best way we can support you and your child is in their everyday environments, whether that be at school, day care, home or a local park. Our travel fees for coming to any of these locations are based on the time travelling from our clinic in Shailer Park. Travel fees vary based on which funding body are registered with so please give us a call to discuss this further. Remember to ask us if we are seeing anyone else in the same to help reduce travel fees.
