The Northern Kids Hub is the collective Hub of services located at the Axis Centre, 27b, 797 Plenty Rd, South Morang. The three services operating from the Northern Kids Hub are Time to Shine Therapy (Psychology Services), Sound it Out Speech Pathology and Building Blocks Occupational Therapy. These services have partnered up to provide families a multidisciplinary clinic to attend to receive the therapeutic services they require at the one location for their children. The benefits of this approach beyond convenience is that (with permission from the family) therapists are able to collaborate between services of mutual clients so to provide a holistic approach to helping that child with their specific needs.
It increases efficacy of communication, reduces "double up" intervention between services, and allows the therapist to train with their own discipline to remain in the know of the most evidence based practices. Therapists can also support one another through ongoing professional development and peer supervision both within their own discipline, and across disciplines to form opinions and guide their therapy based on a range of approaches and ideas. If you have any questions relating to this approach, please feel free to ask us directly!
