Gateways Support Services offers behaviour therapy services to clients in Melbourne’s west. The program aims to build independence and support skill development for children and adolescents with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI) who do not have NDIS funding. Gateways Child and Adolescent Behaviour Therapy Program is funded by the Victorian Government’s Home and Community Care (HACC) Program for Younger People.
Our Child and Adolescent Behaviour Therapy Program recognises that challenging behaviour can provide difficulties for the young person and their family, but that supports may not be readily available if access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has not been approved or established.
As part of the program, a behavioural therapist will work with you, your child and other key professionals already engaged with your child, to develop personalised goals for improvement. Programs may be delivered in-home, as part of a small group or in other settings, depending on each individual’s needs.
The program aims to:
- Enhance skills that improve everyday living,
- Assist with a reduction in the severity of behaviours of concern, and
- Support children and young people to become more independent.
