At Future Footprints, we take a holistic approach to participants’ needs.
Developmental Educators are multi-disciplinary disability specialists with expertise in fostering the skills, independence and quality of life of individuals with developmental and/or acquired disabilities. As allied health professionals, Developmental Educators (also referred to as DE’s) have a practical approach and work holistically across the life span to address issues which may affect the function, independence and social inclusion of individuals with disability, their families and carers.
Our physiotherapists use their expert knowledge of child development, anatomy and movement analysis to assess and develop individualised treatments for our clients. Our sessions are hands on and make use of a variety of different techniques. We focus on improving gross motor skills, postural control, strengthening, and quality of movement while keeping therapy fun and enjoyable. Our services also include equipment assessment and recommendations.
Our service provides a client-centred approach to therapy, aims to develop individual skills and achieve greater independence through supported participation in activities. The OT works with the child and their family, to create a program according to the child’s individual strengths, challenges and goals.
Music therapy is a research-based practice and profession in which music is used to actively support people as they strive to improve their health, functioning and wellbeing. Music therapy is different from music education and entertainment as it focuses on health, functioning and wellbeing.
