Our organisation runs playgroups for children with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus. It caters for ages 0 – 6 years of age and is held at SBH Queensland based at 21 Tillot Street, Dutton Park. There are 10 playgroups held throughout the year. Parents/carers, siblings and grandparents are all welcome. Playgroups are attended by our therapists, social workers and early childhood education advisor. We like to provide a fun and supportive environment for children with activities provided which promote play, language and learning as well as social development through interaction with peers. The sessions also integrate movement goals and the use of specialised equipment to support independent mobility.
The playgroups provide an opportunity for parents to meet with SBH Queensland staff to discuss new learning strategies to support their child’s progress. The SBH Queensland playgroups are for parents/carers too! They can relax and meet other parents in a supportive environment.
