BUSHkids is a not for profit organisation providing free primary allied health care to children and their families in rural, remote and regional Queensland communities.

Our regaional Centres are located at Bundaberg, Dalby, Emerald, Mount Isa and Warwick, with Early Intervention Facilitators are located at our satellite sites at Agnes Water (Miriam Vale), inglewood, Kingaroy (Nanango) and Stanthorpe.

It is the core business of allied health professionals providing child development and therapy services within BUSHkids to improve the health and well-being of children with, or at risk of, developmental and other difficulties by investing early in their health.

BUSHkids Speech-Language Pathologists aim to reduce the incidence or impact of communication and eating difficulties through the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of children with speech, language, voice, fluency, literacy and eating difficulties

BUSHkids Occupational Therapists assess the skills which may impact on a child’s participation in their self-care, play and school activities

BUSHkids Psychologists aim to reduce the incidence or impact of emotional, social, academic and behavioural difficulties

BUSHkids Family Health Support Workers support allied health professionals by providing a range of education and skill-development programs to children and their parents/caregivers

BUSHkids teams work in a collaborative partnership with families or carers within a family-centred framework and aim to improve family functioning to meet the child’s and/or family needs.
