Our therapy services for children include Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, and Physiotherapy. We have two centres in the south metropolitan area of Perth, one at Canning Vale and one at Cockburn Central. Both centres include a large sensory motor gym and several smaller rooms for individual and small group therapy programmes. We also provide therapy services at schools, day care centres, and at home - wherever is the most appropriate environment. 

Skillbuilders has an 'on-site shop' at our Cockburn Central clinic. This provides access to the various products used in therapy and enables parents and teachers to follow through with activities to facilitate their child's development on an ongoing basis.


Our therapy services focus on a range of areas in which children may experience difficulty, including:

  • Pen to paper: Drawing and writing, spelling & written expression
  • Fluent movement: Coordination, ball skills, balance
  • Getting in a muddle: Planning & organisational skills required in the classroom and at home
  • Speaking your mind: Verbal expression and speech
  • Understanding the lingo: Language comprehension
  • Tricky fingers: Fine motor skills
  • I can do it myself: Independence in self care
  • Fighting Fit: Good health and nutrition
  • Making sense of your senses: Sensory and perceptual skills for learning
  • Leaping before looking: Concentration skills
  • Babies and toddlers on the go: Early movement skills, tummy time, self feeding, routines and play

  • Early detection of communication problems is essential to each child’s development, well-being and self-esteem. Children who experience a delay in onset of talking often have difficult to detect middle ear problems, causing hearing loss. They frequently go on to have literacy problems if the underlying language difficulties are not remedied.

    If you have a child who has trouble speaking at a developmental level that is right for their age, we can help them develop speech that is clear and understandable.
