As you can imagine, we meet lots of different parents and children! We work with a number of other professionals who help children and teens, and who care just as much as we do about seeing children succeed in the long term.
We recommend the following groups for advice and support to help kids and parents in Sydney:
Kids & Co (Balmain): Psychologists experienced in helping children and teens. While lack of motivation and falling behind can be normal, and tutoring is a great bridge to improvement, some children have severe anxiety and stress. Some children need an extra hand, and that’s where the team at Kids & Co come in.
Reading and Writing
Irlens Dyslexia Centre Sydney (Burwood): For children dealing with reading problems, dyslexia and visual perceptual disorders. Kate helps parents and children identify whether they need screening, and knows from first hand experience the difference tinted lenses have made to her life! The Irlens Centre helps children with a range of issues. We can refer you on to the Irlens Centre if we suspect that your child would benefit from their help.
Let’s Read 4 Kids (Marrickville): Gemma works with children who have dyslexia using a multi-sensory approach.
The Kids are All Right: Parenting resources and great articles for teens. Parenting doesn’t stop after primary school! Meet other parents, and deal with some of the big issues that parents of teens face today.
ADD, Autism and Natural Health
Integrated Health: Jason at Integrated Health takes a holistic approach to his clients, and has helped many children dealing with ADD and various learning difficulties. His services involve brain mapping, natural solutions, advice, and an integrated approach to working with other health professionals
