Allied Health Services at Village Therapy

We offer a range of services that help our clients and families from Sunbury and the surrounding areas target their therapeutic goals.

Most of our services – whether that’s speech pathology, occupational therapy or music therapy – are delivered through individual therapy. This is where one therapist is working with one child at a time for a fixed period of time, typically up to one hour. That can be in one of our clinic rooms, in schools and kinders, or even over telehealth.

But that’s not all – we can also help our clients through pairs therapy (where two children work with one therapist to achieve similar therapy goals), or with small groups of up to six. These groups, run in the school holidays, are lots of fun and very popular with our families

We accept and affirm people whose brains work in a range of ways. Until recently, the focus of intervention for Autistic people was to try and make them more like neurotypical people, or at least to help them pretend. As the previous generation of Autistic children grew up, they were able to tell us how harmful this was to them. Pretending to be neurotypical is also called masking. Doing this for many years is stressful and exhausting, often leading neurodivergent people to difficulties with anxiety, depression and trauma.

As health professionals, we are committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for our clients. It became apparent that our old therapy approaches were not achieving these outcomes, so we have made a commitment to offer intervention that is neurodiversity affirming. You can find out more in this brochure.
