    Our Approach

    Babies and children have unique anatomical, physiological and psychological needs compared to adults. At Adaptability Therapy, our Paediatric Physiotherapists have extensive training and experience with children and take into consideration these different requirements in order to treat children effectively.

    We take a goal-oriented approach, working on the skills and functioning that are important to the children and families we see. We use best-practice assessments and interventions to guide and design quality programmes to meet your child’s goals. Physiotherapy input may include motor learning through play, equipment or adaptations, strengthening and conditioning, movement training, intensive hands-on therapy as well as education and parent training.

    Our Paediatric Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists work closely together to ensure optimal outcomes for their clients.
