Intensive Therapy Program in Perth for Regional families

For one week in the School Holidays we have our Regional Intensive Program running at our Shenton Park centre.


We have 2 programs based on age groups:

  • First Steps for Autism- Early Intervention Program – for children aged 0-7 years and their families.
  • School Aged Therapy Program- for students aged 8 to 18 years and their families.

The 5 day program includes: 

  • Intensive parent support and coaching sessions
  • Intensive therapy for the child individually and in small groups
  • Development of individualised resources including visual supports
  • Comprehensive clinical assessment
  • Development of an Individual Program Plan
  • Positive behaviour support planning and implementation
  • Development of individualised visual resources
  • Follow up consultation and support to the child’s teacher in the regional area
  • Siblings can attend parts of the program
  • Ongoing follow up Consultation with therapist via videoconferencing on Zoom
  • Access to a wide range of ongoing training

This 5 day intensive therapy program is based on an individual assessment, in collaboration with the family, to identify the child’s learning profile and areas for further skill development. 

A Key Therapist (Speech Pathologist or Occupational Therapist) will work with the family to develop a therapy program based on your child’s needs and on the results of the assessments conducted. The therapy plan can be integrated with school programs and families can choose to continue phone/video conferencing after the intensive program with their Key Therapist to facilitate integration of therapy goals across home/ school and community settings.

Funding – Families can access this program with NDIS funding or self-fund.

Upcoming dates: 

  • January School Holidays – Monday 11th January – Friday 15th January 2021
  • July School Holidays – Monday 12th July – Friday 16th July 2021

We have all loved this program! It has been very informative. The parent sessions have been very useful and have given us lots of tips and advice we can use at home and at school. The therapists are amazing with our child and we can see progress already within the week; they are also very fun and caring.

We love coming here for the program! Very informative parent sessions that are very helpful for resources and tips to use at home and school. All the staff are amazing and can cater to our goals on what to work on as well as their own assessment/input. Our son is very comfortable in the environment and quickly creates good friendships with the therapists.
