For the most important person in your life
Growing Early Minds is a community based, not-for-profit organisation that provides early intervention and disability support to children between 0-16 years, and their families. We are a registered NDIS and Medicare provider and operate across Western Sydney and North West Sydney.
Families can visit us in clinic or we can see children in their natural everyday environments such as at home, child care centre or school. Our clinics are also designed to provide telehealth services to families that reside in remote, regional or interstate locations – distance is no barrier.
We’re committed to supporting and growing the potential of children, families and communities and this has remained unchanged since our initial establishment in 1994.
We’re open, but we have made a few small changes
At this stage, we are continuing to deliver face-to-face therapy, both in-clinic and mobile. All the precautions and steps we are taking can be found here on our COVID-19 Information and Updates page.
Telehealth – what it means now with COVID-19
Growing Early Minds is committed to ensuring ongoing support to all our families now and beyond COVID-19 outbreak. All allied health services are considered essential services, so we will be transitioning to a telehealth-based model to ensure the continuation of therapy that best meets the needs of your family, where appropriate.
COVID-19 has impacted the way we currently live, but it’s really important to keep to your usual routine as much as possible, and this includes therapy. Cancelling your therapy for even a few appointments may result in regression of your child’s progress and skills.
Telehealth is recommended by the National Disability Insurance Agency, Allied Health Professional Australia, Occupational Therapy Australia, Australian Psychological Society, Dietetics Association of Australia, and Speech Pathology Australia.
Registrations now open, closes 15 April or unless booked out!
Parent Workshop Webinar Series
If you’re the parent or carer of a child with ASD, this webinar will provide information and practical strategies for reducing challenging behaviours such as tantrums, noncompliance, and aggression. Facilitated by a qualified provisional psychologist, you’ll learn about the characteristics of ASD and how to identify and manage challenging behaviours. You’ll meet other parents and carers (virtually) who are experiencing similar circumstances.
Cost: $350 for one parent/carer; $450 for two parent/carers of the same child. This program is eligible under NDIS funding.
“Just a note to say how amazing you and your team are…
… Your hard work, dedication, clinical, child and family-focused approach raise the care of your clients to a whole new level. I know that navigating the NDIS and changes to funding structures have resulted in significant increases in your workload, and I greatly appreciate you maintaining the care you provide despite these challenges. We share very challenging clients and I am sure their outcome will only be improved by the high quality care you provide.”
