Exercise physiology is the science of the body and how it works. It’s an evidence-based approach using exercise to manage a range of conditions, including disabilities or developmental delay.
Our exercise physiologists will help your child to:
- Increase their daily physical activity
- Create good habits for life
- Encourage physical literacy; the ability confidence and desire to be physically active for life
- Improve ability and physical competence
- Improve fundamental movement skills e.g. jumping, throwing and catching
- Participate in activities that are fun, healthy and build connection
Kites exercise physiologists will work closely with our occupational therapy, speech pathology, dietitian and dog assisted therapy teams to create a program suited to the therapy goals of your child. We work with you on improving your child’s physical ability, confidence and desire for movement.
Our Exercise Physiology program is based around 6 key areas: function, family, fitness, fun, friends and future. We provide access to specialised support and equipment for children with disability or developmental delay.
