Mental health issues, speech difficulties, disabilities, behaviour problems, friendship worries – no matter what challenge your family is facing, we have therapy options that can make life easier.
We understand that choosing to get help for your child can be anxiety-inducing, overwhelming, and incredibly sensitive. Sometimes you just know in your gut that something’s not right, or maybe you’ve been given a diagnosis and don’t know where to turn.
We’ll hold your hand every step of the way. Many of our staff know exactly what you’re going through, they’ve been there themselves. We’re here to show you that you do have a place to go, there is a community of others just like you, and there are therapies that can genuinely help.
Whether your child needs a combination of therapies, a formal evaluation, or support in a single area, we can provide a tailored solution that suits their unique needs. Our goal is to give you a sense of direction to help you navigate today, tomorrow, and the years ahead with confidence.
When your child is having difficulty expressing themselves, struggling with a speech impediment, or finding reading and writing difficult, it can cause a huge amount of anxiety.
Poor coordination, sensory issues, difficulty playing with toys or other kids, not being able to participate in what other kids are doing…as a parent or caregiver, these are all heartbreaking things to see your child go through.
If you’re concerned about your child’s emotional wellbeing, difficulties making friends, or intense behavior, they could hugely benefit from meeting with one of our experienced psychologists or child and family clinicians.
If you’ve been referred to Kids First for a clinical assessment of your child’s academic, social, behavioral, or emotional functioning, your thoughts might be racing with worry and confusion.
You want to make sure your child is equipped with everything they need to have a happy, healthy, confident start to primary school, but feel they need help developing their skills.
At Kids First, we understand that getting the best therapy and support services for your child is your number one priority.
