Physiotherapy

Some Deaf and hard of hearing children have challenges with their vestibular system and core stability, which can mean their ability to interact, play and explore may be decreased. Our physiotherapists support children to develop their core stability and gross motor skills so they can join in and have fun! 

This service is currently only available in Brisbane.
