BUSHkids is a non-Government, not for profit community organisation which offers a range of free allied health services to children and families living in rural Queensland.
In 2015 BUSHkids celebrated its 80th year of service and while the process of service provision has changed the key to our work is still health access for regional children. Prevention or early intervention is an essential feature of any programs we would offer.
Working from centres located in Bundaberg, Dalby, Emerald, Inglewood, Mount Isa and Warwick, multi-disciplinary teams, comprising of a Psychologist, Speech-Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist and Family Health Support Worker, with satellite sites in Agnes Water/Miriam Vale, Kingaroy/Nanango and Stanthorpe staffed by Early Intervention Facilitators.
Our clients are rural and remote children who are experiencing some behavioural, emotional, social and/or developmental difficulties. Parent support and development programs are also a core component of our services.
