Paediatric Rehab Clinic

Every parent wants to see their child have the opportunity to be who they want to be and realise their dreams. Our Paediatric Rehab Clinic provides the supports and services your child needs to remove barriers so they can live their best life and flourish.

Our Paediatric Rehab Clinic offers the latest evidence-based evaluation and treatment techniques to help children with complex motor disorders. We have a team of rehabilitation specialists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists and social workers who work collaboratively to support your child in a friendly and personalised environment.

From birth through the high school years, we’ll create a tailored plan to help maximise your child’s recovery progress, wellness, quality of life and independence. Our goal is to enable a life without limits for your child, no matter their disability.

Empowering children and young people to flourish and reach their full potential

Creating a tailored, responsive and effective care plan for your child

We firmly believe that a one-size-fits-all approach to your child’s care does not allow them to become who they want to be. Every child has his/her own set of needs, interests and dreams

Our personalised plans are designed to empower your child to learn and grow in a way that works best for them. Our service starts with an allied health pediatric multidisciplinary (MDT) assessment so we can ensure the care we provide delivers the best outcomes for your child’s wellbeing and life. We take a holistic approach to this assessment by having all members of the MDT team present, including a speech pathologist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist and pediatric rehabilitation specialist.

Our paediatric rehabilitation specialist, Dr Chanka, will lead the assessment either in a formal or informal play-based setting, depending on your child and their needs on the day. The assessment provides us with an opportunity to learn more about your child and family’s needs so we can provide the best level of care. We’ll work with you and your child to obtain information on their diagnosis, medications, family history, previous investigations, current skills, communication, development milestones, diet, sleeping routines, cognition, whether they go to school/daycare and their social/behavioural skills.

Your child’s multidisciplinary assessment may include but is not limited to:

  • Physiotherapy: we’ll conduct a musculoskeletal assessment to look at your child’s strength, range and tone/spasticity, balance, gross motor skills, functional mobility and gait.
  • Speech Pathology: we’ll take a look at your child’s swallowing capabilities as well as their language and functional communication skills.
  • Occupational Therapy: we’ll assess your child’s everyday living skills including domestic tasks, community access, self-care skills, spasticity and tone assessment/management, upper limb/hand strength, and function and fine motor skills. This is also an opportunity for us to define any equipment needs that can make your child’s life more meaningful.

Our private clinic setting offers a safe, warm and supportive space, but we can also provide support services in your home or within community settings.

Our Paediatric Rehab Clinic works collaboratively for the best outcome for your child

Beyond Boundaries Rehab offers access to a multidisciplinary team of specialists who put your child’s needs at the heart of what we do. We are at the forefront of current research, so you know you are getting the highest level of evidence-based care available.

Your Beyond Boundaries Rehab team can work closely with other service providers you currently work with – our focus is always on the best approach for the best outcome for you.

We understand how important choice and flexibility is for families, and we’re proud to assist by working collaboratively and delivering in services in a range of different ways.

Our focus will always be on the best care for the best outcome for your child.
