Children and Family Centred Therapy Services

Psychology Services

Psychologists are experts at addressing behavioural and emotional issues.

Developmental Psychologists are concerned with the development of psychological, emotional and perceptual abilities. Psychologists use their own observations in conjunction with individual's and parents' report to understand each child's development, and then structure intervention programs to address areas of difficulty. Psychologists aim to improve quality of life for children in all areas of function through improvement of cognitive abilities and feelings of self efficacy, development of appropriate emotional and behavioural responses, and supporting each child's development of independence.

At MoveAbout Therapy Services, psychology assessment and treatment sessions are specifically designed to meet the needs of each individual child and family. Psychologists work within our developmental framework and the DIR®/Floortime™ model to address any difficulties from a developmental perspective and provide the necessary foundation for future success.
