A new branch of Noah’s Ark has opened in Pakenham, giving local families with special needs kids more options closer to home.
Noah’s Ark provides therapy and education for children with a disability or additional needs aged 0 to 8, while recognising that families play an important role in the children’s health and development.
They support more than 2000 children with disabilities and additional needs, and their families throughout Victoria and the ACT.
Their specialists, with professional backgrounds in speech pathology, occupational therapy, education, physiotherapy, psychology and social work, are known as Key Workers.
Key Workers visit you in your home, and can help build your child’s social and other skills and make sure that the important people in their lives have the information, resources and support they need to help their child learn, develop and reach their goals.
Families and carers can receive services at their home or chosen environment, at their primary school, childcare, preschool or before and after school care, or local Noah’s Ark branch.
Noah’s Ark has opened a new branch in Pakenham and also services the Casey Cardinia area from Frankston and Springvale.
Programs and services include getting ready for school, childcare or kindergarten, parent connection and support, playing together, supporting inclusion and positive behaviour, everyday skills and home modification.
