For your child

We believe all children and young people should be given the opportunities to reach their unique potential. We help parents and carers identify the development goals for their child and family, create a development plan (or work with an existing plan) and provide programs and services to help your child achieve their goals.

Our team of professionals are equipped to work with children and young people of all ages and abilities. Whether your child has a diagnosis or not, we can help find the path that suits them. We like to work with the significant people in your child’s life – parents, carers, extended family, health and education professionals, other service providers – to maximise learning and development opportunities and to foster an environment where your child is supported and encouraged to participate fully in the community.

For you

As a parent or carer of a child with a disability you are often under a great deal of pressure. You may be concerned about your child's development, dealing with a new diagnosis, trying to figure out the best supports for your child, managing the transition to school or trying to navigate the NDIS. Muddy Puddles offers support and information to parents and carers to guide you on your journey with your child.
