Child and Family Therapy Team

The Child and Family Therapy Team (CFTT) provides therapy services to children from birth to 18 years of age who reside in the Tweed and Byron Shires.

The team consists of Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Physiotherapists who work together with the child, their parents and others (preschool or school) to assess and treat a variety of concerns including developmental delay, physical, sensory, communication and feeding difficulties.

We also offer KidScreen, a screening, intake and monitoring clinic for younger children, typically from birth until they start school. Older children will be referred to individual disciplines if required.

KidScreen runs weekly at Tweed Heads Community Health and on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Murwillumbah Community Health.
