New opportunities for CQ children as Bushkids office opens
CQ CHILDREN with disabilities are set to benefit from a new Bushkids team in Rockhampton.
They can now be given access to more support services after a new office opened on New Year’s Day on Bolsover St.
Babies as young as zero to children aged six will benefit from the Bushkids program.
Their 10 Rockhampton staff offer early intervention for children with developmental delay or disability, which had not been consistently available across the region.
Susan Harrison, Bushkids’ clinical services manager said the organisation had a contract to provide these services to families on behalf of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
She said the NDIS provides an opportunity for parents to discuss concerns about their child’s development with a team member who would be able to provide them with advice.
These services extend from Rockhampton to Gladstone, Emerald and Biloela areas.
