At Xavier, we provide children’s disability nursing Brisbane, for children and young adults with complex needs. This can help families to reduce the number of hospital admissions required in a given period of time. Our team of Registered Nurses will work with your family to help your child achieve a better quality of life and to support their complex needs.
The NDIS, or National Disability Insurance Scheme, is changing the way that disability services are funded in Australia. Rather than the funding going directly to the service providers, the NDIS puts the user at the centre of the decision-making process. It is designed to give choice, control and independence to those who access disability services.
Helping your child improve their ability to communicate through speech therapy can greatly improve their self-confidence, independence and their ease in interacting with those around them including in a family environment, an education setting and out in the community.
Occupational therapy for children is a specialised treatment for children with a physical, sensory or mental disability, to help them become more independent in all areas of their lives. Many people are familiar with occupational therapy as an aid to adults recovering from injuries to help them regain functionality or mobility, but it is just as important for children with ongoing disabilities.
