Special Needs Care & Therapy Support

Care & Therapy Support To Help Your Child Achieve Their Goals

Our highly trained care & therapy support professionals have direct experience caring for children with special needs and use their education and  training to ensure each child can reach his or her potential.

Whether an occupational or physical therapy assistant, paediatric healthcare assistant with nursing experience, teacher or other profession, our care providers have the training, skills and expertise to support families with special needs.

Our care professionals work closely your family and local therapy teams to support your child’s individual needs. They provide high quality, skilled care tailored to the child’s diagnosis – implementing therapy homework, creating routines, administering medicine, etc.

Apex care professionals are able to support individuals from 3 months of age through to young adults.
