For under 6 year olds, we do this either as part of an Early Childhood Multidisciplinary Clinic. This involves an initial appointment with a Developmental Paediatrician and a Speech Pathologist or Psychologist, which will determine the direction of further assessment and therapy from our team of experts.  This can include formal developmental or cognitive assessment tools, autism specific assessments, medical investigations, or assessments in speech pathology, occupational therapy, dietetics, and psychology.

Jutta Dempsey - Psychologist Every child that comes to Directions is unique and every one of them deserves to be understood and treated as an individual. Therefore, since no two children are the same, we tailor our approach to meet the unique needs of your child. As psychologists we also take a holistic approach to our work – we want to understand the bigger picture of how your child behaves at home and at school or daycare. At times we may need to work with your other family members. Sometimes we may also be required to work in conjunction with other professionals caring for your child or their school or daycare. Ultimately, our goal is to make sure that every child that comes into our care reaches their full potential.

Good Therapy Australia Often asked to recommend a practitioner, it puzzled me that meaningful information relevant to finding a suitable therapist was not readily available to the general public. The benefits of such a resource were compelling, and in December 2003, fate and inspiration spurred me into action: the first step was to create an accessible Directory where Australians could select from a range of search criteria and browse the profiles of accredited counsellors, psychotherapists, and psychologists. Launched on 15 September 2004, Goodtherapy.com.au was met with enthusiastic support from mental health practitioners and the wider community. In 2005, Good Therapy Australia became a not-for-profit organisation and registered health promotion charity. Today, Good Therapy Australia continues to move forward - albeit slowly and one small step at a time.
