The KEO Approach

Using an evidence-based, multidisciplinary assessment, we focus on:

  • Understanding your child’s unique needs – within their family and natural environments such as kindergarten
  • Achieving positive outcomes for your child through family-centred interventions that are tailored to your child’s goals
  • Empowering and building the capacity of families and other significant people to maximise your child’s opportunity to engage in a range of environments – including home, school, sport and the community

Our experienced therapists provide programs tailored to every situation – following the Key Worker Model.

Key Worker Model

Your family will be allocated a Key Worker from our team of occupational therapists, speech pathologists and physiotherapists. This Key Worker will:

  • Be your primary contact (although the whole team will remain involved)
  • Report back to the team regularly
  • Use a strengths-based, family-centred approach to support you towards achieving your child’s goals and connecting with other services within the community.

This model is built on evidence that families are more comfortable with one therapist to ensure a consistent approach and reduce confusion.

Team consultations and intervention

Depending on your child’s goals and the level of expertise required, your family may also receive support from other professionals in the team (occupational therapists, speech pathologists or physiotherapists).

Your Key Worker will continue to support your family while your child receives specialist intervention.
