What do we do?

ABC

As per our organisation’s policy, we at BUSHkids in Bundaberg are able to provide services to children aged 0-13. As every child’s needs are different, each therapist here enjoys providing individual, goal-directed therapy sessions. These target some of the following common goal areas:

  • Speech Pathology: language (understanding what people say, and using good sentences and words to express concepts and ideas), literacy difficulties, speech-sound difficulties
  • Occupational Therapy: fine motor skills (skills with the hands), gross motor skills (involving the larger muscles of the body – active, physical movement) visual-perception skills (making sense of what we see), sensory issues (affecting concentration and attention), self-care skills (toileting, feeding, dressing etc).
  • Psychology: anxiety, anger management, social skills, behaviour management

In addition to individual therapy sessions, a child coming to the Bundaberg Centre may also be offered to participate in groups targeting some of these skills in a fun and social environment. Furthermore, we recognise that parents are the most important people in their child’s life, and also need to be provided with essential information and skills to help their child grow. The groups we offer are:

Child-focused

    • Fine motor groups for children of various ages
    • Gross motor groups for children of various ages
    • How does your engine run? Alert program for children with sensory processing and self-regulation difficulties
    • Handwriting groups
    • Prep-readiness groups (joint OT/SLP groups)

Parent-focused

    • Autism Spectrum Disorder parent education group
    • Emotional-Regulation parent education group
    • Toileting parent education sessions and workshops

Our Family Health Support Worker also delivers specialised programs targeting socio-emotional wellbeing of children, which are run at our centre, or at local schools and kindergartens. These include:

    • PALS
    • Fun Friends
    • Friends For Life
