Funding for School
For students with a neuromuscular condition such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophies and Spina Bifida, their school is likely to require additional support to give the student opportunities to participate and learn with their peers. That may come in the form of Integration Aides, visiting teachers, visiting therapist, building modifications and or equipment.
Our therapists not only provide hands on therapy for the child, but also assist in the training and education of that child’s other supports, the assessment and prescription of equipment and collaboration with the child’s other health professionals to work towards their goals.
Out therapists are experienced with the Department of Education’s Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) and accessing funding through the State Wide Equipment Program (SWEP). We can also provide assessments and reports to support the school’s application for funding assistance.
