All clinicPsychologists are enrolled in MPsych and DPsych degrees are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia, and closely supervised. They are accepting referrals from parents (not just educational/health professionals) to ensure that we are providing an accessible service for all families. We are also now in a position to provide services to children with Autism/Asperger’s who no longer have access to HCWA (Helping Children with Autism) funding. This may include children who are in the school system and having difficulties with school work or engaging in activities in the home environment. If you are able to share this information with your support group it would be greatly appreciated. The cost of our services is $20 for the first appointment (including a report) and $10 for subsequent appointments. The service is funded to provide Occupational Therapy students the opportunity to observe, learn and practise their professional skills under supervision of a qualified Occupational Therapist. As this service is a part of James Cook University, we actively support research related to the development of evidence‐based Occupational Therapy practice, and you may have the opportunity to participate in various research projects.
