We didn’t have success with the psychologist. At short notice she was unable to work with us. I am still advertising and looking for this spot to be filled.

Additional Physiotherapist
Next year I will be recruiting a physiotherapist to help me out with the enormous work load building up with our current, past and new clients transitioning to NDIS. This Physio will be doing outreach work to schools, home, creche and Saturday work. S/he will be trained up in the programs I run to ensure continuity.

Aziza. Allied Health assistant.
Congratulations to Aziza who has completed her allied Health Assistant Course. She had completed 2 placements with us and is ready to start working part time. Aziza still attends school to do VCE. I am assisting her with her insurance at the moment and will be able to post more information to you when she is ready to take on clients. Your child’s NDIS plan may have funds available for an allied health assistant.

Its almost been 2 years since we moved into the lovely new rooms at Tasma House and we have a lot more services to offer your children. I couldn’t be happier with the development of the practice and hopefully you too will find the additional services helpful for your child, especially being in the one place.
