Physiohealth has a special interest in neurological developmental paediatrics. We have a well equipped paediatric area and we also work well in conjunction with QPRS, CDU, DSQ and ARC Disabilities services to help the children of Cairns. We are also registered providers under the Federal Governments “Better Start for Children with Disabilities”, which allows us to access funding for treatment for children with Cerebral Palsy, Down’s syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, Hearing and Vision Disabilities and since 1st Jan 2013, a large number of syndromes incl Prada Willi. This is directly through the Better Start Initiative and also through Medicare. This is an enormous help for the families and more information can be found at the FACSHIA web site or by contacting our office and speaking to one of the staff.
