Parenting is hard enough.
Parenting and supporting a child with additional needs can be even harder.
We reduce the pressure on parents by offering access to a Therapy Assistant who can visit your home, Kindergarten or school and:
support their fine and gross motor development
help your child understand their environment
use evidence based methods to encourage your child to communicate
use speech therapy strategies to help your child speak more clearly
support your child's behaviour using positive behavioural approaches
Our Therapy Assistant, Laura works under the supervision of our trained health professionals and is a fantastic way to give your child the icing on their therapy cake!
Meet Laura Kelly
I have always had a passion for working with children to help them achieve their goals, with this passion I started studying Occupational Therapy at Deakin University in Geelong and I am currently in my third year.
At the end of my degree I hope to pursue a career in paediatrics where I can continue to provide therapy to children. I have extensive experience working with children with disabilities through my work as a disability support worker, University placements and private respite work over the past three years.
This previous experience and my studies have enabled me to expand my skills as a
developing therapist, I pride myself on being able to build rapport and providing therapy to the highest standard.
I'm looking forward to meeting all the families while working with Dot To Dot.
