Kid Sense Child Development Offers Parent and Child-Friendly Facilities!
At Kid Sense, we make it easy to attend therapy because parenting can be tricky enough at the best of times. We know parents are time poor and low in energy, yet driven to provide the very best for their children no matter what.
With this in mind, Kid Sense ensures that the consistency of therapy is easily achievable by bringing our therapists to your community, which is why you will find a Kid Sense clinic in a location that is close to you.
All clinics are specifically located to offer parent and family-friendly benefits that makes therapy attendance enjoyable and easy for both the parent and child.
These parent and child-friendly benefits at all clinics include:
- Free onsite parking
- Cafés within an easy walk
- Playgrounds nearby
- Grocery stores with an easy walk
- Comfortable and well resourced (during non-COVID times) waiting rooms with children’s play items and parent magazines.
Vary between clinics. Contact your closest clinic to find out more.
Although most of our services are centre-based, we also offer the option of telehealth appointments. However, we believe our community-focused, in-clinic appointments offer the best quality of care possible.
We use these (mostly) centre-based therapy appointments to develop the skills children (and adults) need for real life, and then set up the necessary supports for those skills to be transferred into the ‘real world’ to set the child up for success in life.
Physical attendance at an appointment means you can see up close and personal what the Speech and Occupational Therapy intervention look like, as well as providing you with the resources you need to implement these same techniques at home! We highly value parents and teachers as part of a child’s therapy team. The more feedback and management strategies we share as a team, supporting the child, the more progress all involved parties will see and benefit from.
Because we recognize that parents are often overcommitted, we provide written home recommendations ideas or activities after each appointment wherever possible to jog the memory of helpful things to do at home. These can then be emailed to other involved parties (e.g. teachers) if so requested. Home activities are an excellent way to help in the journey to help your child’s developmental challenges.
Clients seeking both Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy sessions can choose to attend these sessions individually, or can choose to make both appointments back to back.
We recognize that sometimes’ life happens’ and attending an appointment can prove difficult. This might be just one of the times that you choose to use Teletherapy. You might also use them when you are sick and chose to remain at home, when travel is impossible or for other family members (eg Grandma) to be part of a therapy appointment.
