Western Kids Health offers expert, holistic care to children who require Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychological and Dietetic services, along with Yoga, Art and Hydrotherapy classes.
Our service is designed to optimise the benefit to your child; appointment times are longer, we include siblings and family members and our therapists tailor treatment to your child’s physical, emotional and cognitive development. Head to each services page to see the types of appointments and programs we offer.
Our therapists are committed to continuing professional development which enables them to assist with a wide range of paediatric conditions. A consultation with one of our therapists consists of an individually tailored assessment, treatment strategies to address your child’s needs, along with a written or mobile app program to take home.

Every child will receive a formal assessment during the initial 1-2 visits with each needed discipline. You may only need to see one type of health professional or you may need assistance from a few. Initial assessments take about an hour. Please bring any test or investigation results to your child’s appointment. If attending a physiotherapy appointment, wearing loose, comfortable clothing is also advised.
Following the assessment, results will be provided and a treatment plan will be designed to meet the individual needs of the child and his or her family. Assessment and treatment are based on evidence-based practice. The needs of your child and appropriate treatment are established together between the treating therapist and yourself. Treatments will vary from direct therapy blocks to consultations and home program suggestions.
