Starfish Hydrotherapy

When: Friday morning during summer months (February/March and November/December) each year
Duration of group: 1 hour for 4 weeks

Our Starfish Hydrotherapy program is an aquatic based program conducted in a hydrotherapy pool for Early Intervention clients of all different ability levels.

The group is run by physiotherapists with the focus on developing core muscle strength, movement, lower and upper limb strength, communication and social skills in a fun interactive group setting.

The group focuses on safe entry and exit into and around the aquatic environment. All activities are supported by sensory strategies, visual aids and action songs to increase participation and motivation.

Parents are encouraged to get into the water with their children to learn handling skills and activity ideas for continuing hydro outside of the group.
