How we work with families

Main Content

The Kites team here in Tasmania works closely with parents, caregivers and early childhood teachers to support children’s development, to give every child the best possible start.

The solutions we develop are as unique as the kids and families we work with, and as diverse as the disabilities and developmental difficulties they live with.

Kites Therapy Team

The Kites therapy team includes:

Best practice approaches

Kites uses a range of approaches based on best practice:

  • Family-centred – understanding you are the expert on your child
  • Strengths and interests based – to aid your child’s everyday learning
  • Working in natural learning environments – where your child learns
  • Coaching – building the capacity of families and educators to learn skills that promote child learning

Your therapy team will work with you in places your child learns such as home, daycare and school.
