Each room has sensory motor equipment and suspension points to hang swings and hammocks; we have a wide range of musical instruments including various drums, guitars and percussion instruments; we have a wide range of toys that promote language, pretend play, helping children talk about their experiences and inner worlds using a mode that they are comfortable with; we have various resources to promote speech and language development. Each resource, piece of equipment and toy has been carefully chosen keeping children’s development and learning in mind. During your initial visit you will be able to see our indoor and outdoor spaces and why children enjoy coming to My Therapy House®.
At My Therapy House® we work closely with visiting consultants as part of the team to ensure families have a seamless service. Sometimes the consultants are local, other times they are from interstate. At this stage, we are working closely with Dr. Margaret Kyrkou, who is a Medical Consultant (GP) specialising in Developmental Disabilities. Dr. Margaret Kyrkou works under the Medicare Scheme, and bulk-bills all families via Medicare.
Dr Margaret’s appointments at My Therapy House® typically last 45 minutes. Home visits or school visits can be arranged and may attract a gap fee. Dr Margaret may also be able to participate in a multi-disciplinary case conference under the Medicare Scheme. This may also attract a gap fee.
All of our staff work closely with interstate or international supervisors in the area of childhood development and special needs. These supervisors and mentors provide us with the latest evidence based best practice to ensure the service we deliver to children and families is the latest in child development and parenting.
No referral is required for My Therapy House® services when using private insurance, National Disability Services Scheme or self-funding.
However, if you want to use a Medicare Rebate Scheme such as the Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly Enhanced Primary Health Care Plan) or the Better Access to Mental Health Initiative (Mental Health Care Plan), you will need to have a referral letter from a General Practitioner (GP) for the specific staff member(s) of My Therapy House® you would like your child or yourself to see. You will need your paediatrician to write you a referral letter for the Helping Children with Autism Package.
