Looking for Children's Therapy?
Children who encounter challenges during childbirth, early years, or development may experience difficulties in their movement and participation in exercise or playtime. These struggles in achieving developmental milestones can have a significant impact on their schooling, sports participation, and social interactions. However, Exercise Physiology can play a crucial role in addressing these issues and supporting your child’s healthy journey into adulthood.
Helping children with exercise and rehabilitation requires a specialised approach, considering anatomical, physiological, and psychological differences compared to adults. At Effect Exercise Physiology, we understand the importance of considering these developmental variations in order to effectively treat children. Our team of Exercise Physiologists comprises highly skilled professionals who are trained to utilise the latest paediatric assessment tools and interventions. We are dedicated to designing quality programs that align with your child’s goals.
We firmly believe that we can assist with any problem, regardless of its scale. Our expertise extends to helping children with various conditions, including:
- Learning disabilities
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Cerebral palsy
- Vision or hearing impairment
- Hypermobility disorders (e.g., Ehlers Danlos Syndrome)
- Physical disabilities
By addressing these challenges through tailored exercise programs, we can help your child improve their physical abilities, enhance their overall well-being, and foster a positive transition into adulthood.
At Effect Exercise Physiology, we are committed to providing comprehensive support to children of all ages and abilities. We take pride in utilising evidence-based approaches and employing our expertise to help your child overcome obstacles and achieve their full potential.

With an Exercise Physiologist you can expect your child to improve their:
- Walking/running control
- Social interaction

Your child can feel comfortable in our safe exercise space, where they will have an Exercise Physiologist beside them to implement an effective programme, monitor progress and help your child have fun! We also work closely with Paediatricians and Paediatric Physiotherapists to provide the best outcome for your child.
We specialise in treating children between the ages of 5-17years of age. We can see any child above the age of 5 years of age without a referral. For any children under the age of 5 we require a referral from their Paediatrician and/or Paediatric Physiotherapist. Parents with children under the age of 12 must be present at all appointments. If your child is an NDIS participant we are approved to see your child.
