Therapy at The Play Projects
Our team of experienced occupational, behavioural and speech therapists work with children and young adults with neurodivergent challenges to create individual strategies that help them reach their goals.
At The Play Projects, we do therapy a little differently. Our clinic-based services are just a small part of how we achieve desired outcomes and our approach to unrestricted and highly flexible therapy sees our clients reap the benefits of unique therapeutic experiences.
As a registered NDIS provider, our team is well-versed in setting goals and documenting outcomes in line with NDIS plans.
Our Therapy Services
We provide services for speech, language, literacy and communication disorders in children.
Our team of occupational therapists work offer therapeutic experiences that align with our play-based philosophy.
Our highly skilled Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners assist participants to create individualised strategies
Our Unique Approach
While we provide traditional therapy services, our offering extends much further than what is expected from clinic-based therapy. Our play-based approach means we don't restrict our clients to the confines of the clinic.

Our Commitment to You
We think outside the box to offer programs that work. Partnering with families, schools and communities, we offer a collaborative approach to understanding children and what types of resources and intervention they may need.
We don’t believe every child or person needs therapy. We do believe every child can benefit from fun and play-based activities that enable them to become happy, healthy and confident kids. We are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of the next generation. And our range of programs and services reflects that.

School Based Services
We believe that when you know better, you can do better that’s why our school-based services focus on the staff rather than the students. Sharing our knowledge with school staff about the foundations of a child’s brain and body development gives staff the skills they need to better understand children’s behaviour and how best to support their learning in the classroom.
- 1hr education sessions starting at $600 + travel
- 1/2 day services $800 (travel included)
- Full Day services $1200 (travel included)
- Full OT Assessments and Reports $300 per student
We all want what's best for our children, but who teaches us how to do that, and where do we start?
Children spend 1200 hours per year at school, and more than 3500 at home (that’s after you take out sleep time). Therefore we believe that growing happy, healthy and confident kids starts at home.
If you're not sure where to start and need someone to talk you through the options for your child contact us to arrange a 1hr Power Hour Call.
