BUSHkids has been delivering services via telepractice since 2016 which, through research, has been tried-and-tested and proven effective for BUSHkids clients.
teleBUSHkids can take shape in many different ways.
You may meet with an individual worker, such as a Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, or a Psychologist.
Or join some of our group education programs that can be held over telepractice, such as BUSHkids’ A Steady Start to School, Triple P – Positive Parenting Program, Circle of Security, 1-2-3 Magic and Mother Goose.
Our team may also link in with community partners such as schools via telepractice.
