Who we are
At Xavier, we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disabilities and health needs.
We work with families to help them access the support and services they require to best meet the unique needs of their child living with complex health and disability 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 disabilities and health needs, that require very tailored care. Our team exclusively specialise in meeting these complex needs and have decades of experience to draw upon. We work with families throughout the greater Brisbane region.
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.
Speech pathology can be commonly referred to as speech/language therapy. If your child has been newly referred for speech pathology or you’re just starting out on your therapy journey, you may be wondering just what it’s all about.
Have you ever been going about your day, driving to work or shopping in your local supermarket and you hear a song that takes you right back to an entirely different time in your life? It’s pretty extraordinary that a song can completely alter how we’re feeling, sometimes only temporarily but the affects can be even longer term.
Understanding early language and communication as adults, can help us to better support children as they’re learning. A Speech Pathologist can work with your child to identify communication difficulties, formulate therapy goals and support your child’s early communication development.
