Through this program we coordinate a free multi-disciplinary clinic with a Speech Pathologist or Occupational Therapist for your child. Other services are sometimes available, as reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The program is all about improving access to allied health services for vulnerable children and families.

Who is eligible for the program?

To be eligible for WARATAH for Kids, your child must be:

  • Aged between 0-7
  • Have at least one developmental delay or behaviour concern, as diagnosed by GP or a screening tool such as an Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ), or Learn The Signs Act Early (Blue Book)
  • Have not previously seen a Speech Pathologist or Occupational Therapist for an assessment in the last 12 months

Please note that vulnerable children and families will be prioritised.

How do I access the program?

Under the pilot project, only participating GP clinics can refer children into the program.

These include:

If you have concerns about your child’s development, chat to your GP.
