Support for children with disability or developmental delay

MCM provides a range of services to support your child throughout their development.

Our range of allied therapy services are delivered by experienced practitioners in your home, your child’s learning environment or in one of our centres.

Speech therapy with an early childhood intervention client

Speech therapy or speech pathology

Speech therapy — also known as speech pathology services — offers support for people who experience difficulties communicating or swallowing.

A child speech pathologist will work closely with your child to make an assessment and offer courses of treatment and strategies to try at home.

Speech therapy may assist your child if they experience speech and/or language difficulties, issues with their voice, stutters or problems swallowing.

Early childhood intervention client engages in occupational therapy

Occupational therapy

For children, an occupational therapist looks at key developmental milestones and offers support to help achieve them.

Some examples of these milestones may be in improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Education is extended to parents and carers so they too can help facilitate learning and further development

 

Specialised teaching

Specialised teachers, or education specialists, have specific experience in supporting children with disability or developmental delay to participate at school.

Find out more about our School Readiness program.
