How is KidsFirst different from other Early Intervention centers?
The KidsFirst Program is a fully integrated learning environment that includes Speech and Occupational Therapy. This is offered on site and within the program hours.
What is the advantage of integrating speech and occupational therapy within the program?
Goals set by ST and OT are pursued by the entire team, during the 6 hours daily. This ensures that the skills are generalised in all settings and with all people, instead of being specific to any one person or environment.
Are the number of hours sufficient for early intervention?
At 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, 20 sessions a month our children receive 120 hours of therapy a week.
We are open for 50 weeks in a year, ensuring that there is no break in therapy.
