About Early Intervention
Early Childhood Intervention gives children with developmental delay or disability aged 0 to 16 the learning opportunities and supports they need to reach their potential. At Myhorizon we work hand in hand with you, for you, to develop your child’s physical, cognitive, social, and emotional capabilities for today and tomorrow.
Our Service Framework
We are able to offer our early intervention service to you via three distinct modes – our group-based set program Baby Bridges™, MyTime carers program, and via tailored supports to address the individual needs identified in your child’s NDIS Plan.
Our flagship early intervention program is funded by the Queensland Government and is free to access if you are concerned about your child’s development. The program runs in six week blocks and combines specialist therapy sessions for your child with family capacity building, peer connection, and respite care opportunities that are designed to empower you in your caregiving role.
Individually Tailored Supports
If your child qualifies for funding under the NDIS we can deliver early intervention supports that will best meet their needs. Therapies we can coordinate and deliver
for you include but are not limited to speech, occupational, physio, hydro,
and play therapies.
This FREE peer support group is specifically designed for mothers, fathers, grandparents and anyone caring for a child aged 0-16 year with disability or a chronic medical condition.
What Sets Us Apart
We aim to exceed your expectations by giving you access to quality supports that are delivered by quality staff in quality surrounds. Some of the main benefits of accessing our service include:
We are committed to expressing Myhorizon’s organisational values of acceptance,caring, collaboration, empowerment, positivity, and transparency in every interaction we have with you and your child. Accordingly, we only employ qualified therapists and therapy assistants with the same interpersonal goals so you can feel confident your child will receive optimum care when participating in any of our programs or NDIS Plan-approved sessions.
Our Ian McDougall Centre is purpose-built for early intervention therapy. Located within Myhorizon’s multi-million dollar community centre at Capalaba, it is equipped with therapy rooms, a sensory room, kitchen, childproof courtyard, training facilities, and a relaxation room for carers. We are also conveniently situated next door to The Bush Pantry café, the perfect place to unwind with a coffee or light meal between your early intervention appointments.
