to Your Child
We believe that everyone deserves to be part of an inclusive community.
At SeeChange Therapy, we are dedicated to supporting not only the child but those around the child by delivering a range of therapeutic services that empower families. When the adults supporting a child have the knowledge and skills to assist a child to build meaningful relationships the whole family can be more engaged and create richer community connections. Our multidisciplinary team works with families to set meaningful goals and works together towards achieving positive outcomes for all.
Who We Support
SeeChange Therapy offers in-home, in-clinic, and community-based therapy services in Newcastle, NSW.
We specialise in working with whole families to create a consistent approach as we know that when key adults like parents/caregivers and educators are empowered to become part of the therapeutic team there is increased developmental support for the child. This can lead to improved learning ability and social and communication skills and more meaningful relationships for children.
Meet the SeeChange Team
We are a team of highly skilled and experienced professionals in Newcastle committed to working with families and individuals looking for support, learning, development, and inclusion. We offer a wide array of assessments and therapeutic services, all of which are crafted according to the specific needs and goals of our clients. Whether you are looking for support for yourself or a family member, you can expect to develop genuine, high-quality relationships with our dedicated practitioners and administrative team.
Every One is Different, Our Process Identifies Your Individual Needs
At SeeChange Therapy, we know that every family has unique circumstances.
We take time to listen and understand throughout the whole therapeutic journey beginning with an optional informal free 15 min phone conversation with a senior clinician before your first intake appointment.
Begin your relationship journey by either calling or attending our drop in sessions
At SeeChange you begin your relationship journey by either calling or attending one of our fortnightly drop-in sessions. This is the first opportunity for you to discuss your concerns. Next is an intake meeting where information is gathered more comprehensively. SeeChange aims to support families through these critical first steps in identifying and understanding the key goals you wish to achieve.
After the initial intake, we may complete a formal assessment using standardised assessment tools, or an informal assessment involving interviews and observations, in order to identify the most suitable services and therapy program for you or your child.
After the initial intake conversation, our multidisciplinary team will discuss which assessments are most relevant, and with your approval organise them for your child. This may include drawing on multiple services to best suit your family’s needs such as an OT Assessment, a Social Communication assessment, a Cognitive Assessment, or a Comprehensive Assessment.
Collaboratively build an individualised therapy program
After completing assessments and further discussions, your lead practioner will collaboratively build an individualised therapy program based on your child’s current skills and addressing desired goals to promote inclusion and connection.
We offer therapies that can be delivered in-home, in community, or in clinic to ensure your child has the support they need and will benefit from it most.
Finding reliable information to understand your child’s unique development can be challenging.
Our fortnightly free, no-strings attached drop in sessions are designed for parents/caregivers to come in and have an informal chat to one of our experienced therapists to talk openly about your concerns and seek information and support on the services that could be suited for your child/family.
Not Sure Where to Start? Confused?
Connect With Us
The rewards and unique challenges that come with neurodiversity shape relationships for our clients with their family, friends, and members of the community. We empathise with families and understand the frustration and feelings of isolation that can come with caring for a child with additional needs. We believe it is a shared responsibility to create environments where neurodivergent children can flourish. This begins with fostering authentic relationships with a child’s support network and ensuring that relationships are underpinned by understanding, empowerment, and acceptance. SeeChange aims to collaborate with families and connect with other services to create a new way of being in our community where everyone is truly valued.
