At Child’s Play we specialise in helping toddlers and preschoolers learn to talk and communicate.
Parents feel relieved and empowered when they work with us. By working hand-in-hand with our therapists, families are equipped with the knowledge they need to take therapy from the therapy room and weave it into a child’s day-to-day moments. By making it simple for parents to be a key part of their child’s therapy, real shifts in communication development happen.
Rylie and her team draw on extensive experience working with a range of early communication difficulties and disorders, including:
- Late Talking
- Speech and Articulation
- Language (understanding and expressing)
- Social skills
- Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Systems, including signing, PECS, and more
- Communication difficulties associated with diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Global Developmental Delay and more.
We offer both in-clinic services, at our Tuggerah office, and a mobile service that allows us to come to the client, providing intervention at home, preschools, day care centres and more.
