CliniKids is Telethon Kids Institute’s first team integrating their world-class research with a clinical service. At the heart of our innovative model are children with developmental delay and/or an autism diagnosis, and their families.
By working side by side, our exceptional team of researchers and clinicians, led by Professor Andrew Whitehouse, put research into practice, providing families with access to tailored supports and the best evidence-based therapies in the world.
CliniKids, a registered NDIS provider, offers early support services including speech pathology, occupational therapy and clinical psychology for children under the age of 9 years. Families also have the opportunity to be involved in our most current research.
CliniKids also runs workshops for parents and caregivers in addition to professional training in specific therapies for clinicians and autism professionals.
CliniKids won the Excellence in Allied Health category at the 2023 National Disability Awards, an initiative of the National Disability Services.
