Our Program and Approach
At KU South West Sydney Therapy and Skills, we provide early childhood intervention specialist support for families who have a child aged from birth with a disability or a developmental delay. We offer intervention in everyday settings, including in the family home, preschools, long day care centres, family day care, schools, community activities and specialised play-based family programs.
We are able to help your child communicate, learn, move and play; support your child’s school, early childhood centre and community settings to support their meaningful participation; and assist during transition times in your child and family’s life, such as into educational and community settings.
The types of services we provide include transdisciplinary early childhood intervention provided by a Key Worker and specialised individual therapy and assessments. Transdisciplinary intervention involves a team of professionals who work together to evaluate, plan and implement services for your child, with one professional acting as a Key Worker. We view your family as a valued member of the team and you are involved in all aspects of the agreed intervention.
We are very proud of the support and services we offer, however what matters most is what our families think:
"Since we've been with KU therapy, we have seen a vast improvement in the functioning and capabilities of our two children, who have both been involved with KU’s therapy and skills program. We have benefited from the broad scope of knowledge and skills that the trans-disciplinarian team has provided. By engaging with a key worker, we have had a single point of contact from which to engage various therapies and disciplines, as opposed to having to engage separately with multiple groups, who would each have their own set of goals and ideas around working with our family. This approach has greatly benefited us in terms of providing a framework from which to work towards our goals in a clear and meaningful way. Additionally, I have found that KU has been an excellent partner in terms of genuinely wanting to see the best outcomes for our children and having a strong commitment to helping our children succeed and become the best version of themselves." - KU South West Sydney Therapy and Skills parent
"It is great to have KU therapy come to our home. I am learning many strategies from our OT such as how to improve my son's eye contact. I have seen big improvements with his eye contact since learning these strategies. My son attends KU preschool and they have also seen improvements! This makes me feel very happy!" - KU South West Sydney Therapy and Skills parent
Each KU centre is unique. The best outcomes for children are created within relationships and interactions between children and staff, and children and their families, not within four walls. We work hard to create beautiful, interesting, homelike learning environments for children – whatever our setting.
