Workshops in Australia

We welcome requests from therapists and organisations to present one of the workshops listed on the 'Potential Workshops' page. Please contact us about what is involved in co-hosting a workshop.

See our potential workshops page for the range of workshops we are able to present. Suggestions & requests are welcome. We understand that the cost of attending two-day workshops can be prohibitive when travel and accommodation are added. For this reason, Paediatric Therapy & Workshops likes to take our presenters to as many cities around Australia as possible to give more therapists the opportunity to attend.

Watch this space for updates on topics and dates, or contact us if you would like to go on our mailing list to receive email notifications about our courses and workshops.
