About Us

Who are we?

Head Start Children’s Therapy Services is a Rockhampton based private practice, established in 2014. We work with Central Queensland children, young people, families and those that support them.

Head Start Children’s Therapy Services offers a caring, fun and playful environment where families can discuss concerns in detail. We provide comprehensive assessments, and in collaboration with families can provide regular therapy to help children develop the skills they need.

Services can be offered through individual therapy, family therapy, group sessions and individually tailored training programs.
