Groups by nature are social opportunities. Our therapists are trained in best practice to develop social skills in all of our group programs. Activities are designed to be motivating and enable children to master everyday activities, addressing their goals in a fun and supportive social context.
Teen & Youth Connections
These groups cater to both primary and high school level clients with a focus on building friendships, assisting with emotional regulation, sensory processing difficulties, social problem solving & perspective taking.
Play & School Readiness
These groups cater to pre-school level clients with a focus on developmental play and communication skills, fine and gross motor skill development, social skills, transitions and planning.
These groups cater to all ages and focus on activities of daily living such as toileting, cooking and food learning.
At Barefoot Therapists we have a focus on building skills for the whole family and offer support, parental guidance, tips and strategies to assist with this.
We promote a model of care across our organisation which is child centred and family sensitive.
We are located at 1/16 Henry Wilson Drive, Rosebud (on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula) and Gadara Farm in Boneo.
