The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) defines Support Coordination as primarily being;

‘Assistance to strengthen participant’s abilities to coordinate and implement supports and participate more fully in the community. It can include initial assistance with linking participants with the right providers to meet their needs, assistance to source providers, coordinating a range of supports both funded and mainstream and building on informal supports, resolving points of crisis, parenting training and developing participant resilience in their own network and community.’

Lyn graduated from physiotherapy in 1982. The first years of her career were spent at the Women's and Children's Hospital before moving on to open a private paediatric practice in Southern Adelaide.

 

In 1996, Lyn together with her family moved to Sydney where for the next 15 years she gained further experience in all aspects of paediatric physiotherapy working in the community at services such as Cerebral Palsy Alliance and Early Education Clinic as well as at Westmead Children's Hospital.

 

Returning home to South Australia in 2010 Lyn worked at Novita as the senior physiotherapist in both the metropolitan and regional teams across South Australia.

 

Lyn has always been passionate about promoting the best outcome for her clients and has extensive experience working with children with developmental delay, global developmental delay, cerebral palsy and other neurological and physical conditions .

What is it?

 Hydrotherapy is a form of specific Physiotherapist supervised treatment and exercise program in a heated pool (32 degrees). Hydrotherapy can help strengthen  muscles, develop balance and coordination, promote relaxation, mobilise joints and relieve pain. Aquatic activities can help development your child’s gross motor  skills.

 The aquatic environment provides a way of assisting your child’s motor skill development because:

  • It is FUN

  • It provides scope for a huge variety of activities

  • Your child won’t realise they are doing activities to assist their gross motor skills

  • Working with both the support of the water and its resistance, your child works physically harder, and can do this for longer without tiring. As they tire, their bodies are supported by the water, enabling them to practice for longer

  • In order for your child to stay steady and stable in the water, they HAVE to use their core/trunk muscles. This helps them learn one of the core elements of movement development. All of the hydrotherapy exercises are excellent activities for developing core stability

  • Just by being in the water environment, your child’s body has continuous sensory pressure on its surface. This kind of sensory input assists your child in knowing where their body, arms and legs are in space – it helps their body awareness

 

Entry into our hydrotherapy sessions requires an assessment so that sessions can be individualised to your child’s needs. Please contact or office to arrange this.


We use hydrotherapy in conjunction with other forms of treatment to assist in achieving our treatment goals.  Your physio will discuss with you your child’s goals and design a specific program for your child.
