Better Start for Children with a Disability

All About Kids is a Lead Agency for the Department of Social Services funded program for children with developmental disorders such cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome and moderate or greater hearing or vision impairments, including deafblindness, Prader Willi, Williams, Angelman, Kabuki, Smith-Magenis, CHARGE, Cornelia de Lange or Cri du Chat syndromes or microcephaly.

We have a range of support services within Psychology, Speech Language Pathology, Learning Support and Occupational Therapy to support your child. A case management intake interview is often held to discuss the needs and priority concerns of your child, and to plan an overall intervention including therapy, educational and home based needs.

Diagnostic assessments for developmental delay and progress, ability and learning are conducted through our psychologists, whilst specific therapeutic or developmental assessments are  completed by all therapists in order to plan the most effective intervention for your child.

Intervention approved by DSS includes speaking and communication, parenting and management of behaviours often associated with developmental delay, physical and motor coordination development and social skill development.
