Private assessments

We offer private assessments to help get your child back on track

We work with teachers and families to identify a child's individual and environmental abilities and challenges. You don't need a referral from a GP, however, a GP can provide you with a Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly enhanced Primary Care Plan). This allows you to claim partial reimbursement for up to five therapy sessions per calendar year.

About Private Assessments

Delivering high-quality care in the community

We're focused on bringing high-quality healthcare back into the community. Care started in the community in the first place, with most services being delivered in peoples homes. Technology was one reason health systems became hospital-centric as health professionals started to meet around expensive equipment and knowledge centres that allowed them to specialise. However, technology now allows us to bring a team of professionals to your home to help you achieve your goals.
