Who we are
At Xavier, we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disability and related health needs.
We help children and their families to live the best lives possible, as a family. We provide health supports such as nursing and allied health services through to supporting children in play and in their community giving them the opportunity to just be kids.
Our goal is to deliver the highest quality support and services to families who really need it. Families who are caring for children with complex disability and health needs, that require very tailored care.
Our multi-disciplinary team specialise in meeting these needs and have decades of experience to draw upon. We work with families throughout Brisbane the greater Brisbane region.
Pressure sores are areas of damage to skin and soft tissue caused by ongoing friction, moisture or pressure. Children with physical and complex disability who are immobile or have difficulty with mobility are at risk of developing pressure sores. We taske a look at causes, prevention and treatment.
One of the ways that Speech Pathologists can help children with their communication is by supporting them to build their language skills. While your child’s Speech Pathologist will play a vital role in supporting your child to improve their language skills, there are so many ways that parents, carers, teachers and educators can help too.
During a 24 hour period, there are generally three core postural orientations for all of us. They are lying, sitting and standing. Individuals with no movement limitations are able to move freely between these three postures. However, for those who have movement differences this is not always the case.
Counselling is an allied health support that can improve the quality of life for both those living with a disability and their family members. For families of children with a disability, it’s not widely known that counselling can be accessed through your child’s NDIS plan.
