CliniKids is different because our integrated team of clinicians and researchers work in collaboration to put research into practice and provide your family with the most up-to-date, and highly evidenced therapy.
This means clinical care is completely integrated with cutting-edge research - a first for autism in Australia. This will accelerate discoveries and bring new evidence-based therapies to kids and families faster.
CliniKids is part of Telethon Kids Institute and is the Institute’s first clinical service. The CliniKids team of researchers and clinicians are led by Professor Andrew Whitehouse and work in collaboration to integrate research into clinical care for kids with autism and developmental delay.
CliniKids is an approved National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider and can provide services that may be eligible for Medicare and Private Health Insurance rebates. We understand that navigating funding options can be complex, which is why we work with each family to support them to understand the options available, and to assist them in developing a plan that best suits the needs of their child.
