Paediatric physiotherapy

Paediatric physiotherapists help children develop movement skills like sitting, rolling, walking, and kicking a ball. At Plumtree, therapy sessions can be held at your home, in early childhood education centres, at school, in the community or at our Marrickville centre.

Our physiotherapists use your child’s strengths and interests to support their development and make learning fun. They can assist with daily routines such as playing, visiting parks, and getting dressed. Physiotherapists can also recommend specialised equipment if needed. 

We work closely with families to ensure children can move around independently and participate in family and community life. Our physiotherapists will share strategies that you can use between sessions to achieve your goals, because evidence shows that most of a child’s learning happens in their natural settings with family and carers.

Frequently asked questions

Why do our physiotherapists work closely with parents?

Our physiotherapists believe parents know their children best. By working closely with you during sessions, we ensure that goals are practical and achievable. We then create personalised strategies tailored to your child’s unique needs. 

Professionals may come and go, but families are the constant support in a child’s life. Good partnerships between therapists and parents ensure that support and learning continue at home, leading to better outcomes for your child. We give you the skills and strategies to make it happen.

How long are therapy sessions?

Sessions times vary but are mostly one hour long. However, they can be longer if that’s the best approach to meet your goals. Sessions can be scheduled weekly or fortnightly over an extended period, or as shorter blocks. 

What happens during a therapy session? 

Therapy sessions do not all look the same. Every family has their individual priorities so we tailor our sessions to meet your circumstances. For more information read our flyer.

What are the benefits of using a NDIS registered physiotherapist 

NDIS registered providers meet strict government standards for safety, quality and reliability, which ensures your child receives high-quality support. These providers have verified credentials that safeguard your child’s well-being. 

Plumtree is a registered provider of NDIS supports. Our physiotherapists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
