Established in 2007, Quickstepz Paediatric Therapy is an early intervention service that provides children with developmental delay/disability with a comprehensive intervention program that is tailored to meet their individual needs.
Quickstepz is designed with the flexibility to provide families with a treatment program that can function as the child’s primary or supplemental intervention program.
Occupational Therapy intervention may be just a short-term burst of therapy or an ongoing process to build skills and allow your child to gain the confidence they need to maximise their potential and reach their goals. Therapy is provided through a range of individual and peer consultations. Close work with the child’s parents, therapists and teachers is essential to ensure that the child’s needs are being met at home, school and in the community.
