Working Together: Therapy in the Early Years


A Guide for Parents

This guide aims to provide you with information to assist you in making decisions and getting the help and therapy services needed to build your child’s skills so they can actively participate in family, school and community life. You are the most important person in your child’s life and know your child best. You know their likes and dislikes; your family routines, and you spend the most time with your child. This means you are in the best position to help your child to develop through being actively involved in their therapy through play, time at home and out and about together.

Starting therapy early really helped my child get a head start.  It was great to see him starting to learn to walk   [Clare – Parent]
