Helping children reach their full potential
Accessing help early in a child’s development can make all the difference.
Country Health Connect Children’s Services are family oriented, supporting children to grow and develop to their full potential. We work with children and their families from birth up to 17 years of age and we are a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) service provider.
Services for developmental needs
For families who are not eligible for the NDIS, Country Health Connect has a range of services available to support you if your child has developmental delay.
Our services can be provided in-home, in our clinics or through community locations such as child care, kindergarten, school or a community venue. We tailor our services to meet your needs and can see your child individually or in a group program.
Following a planned period of support, if your child needs ongoing care or therapy we will help work out the next steps:
- Staying with us and working on your goals
- Helping you access other services
- Helping you apply to the NDIS for ongoing support and funding
