Therapy Hive Assistants work in partnership with families and qualified allied professionals, adding an extra dimension to support the child’s therapy plans and programs.

What Is a Therapy Assistant?

Therapy Hive Assistants attend face to face sessions with a child to help the child learn new skills to support their development, wellbeing and participation in the community.

It is a fun and rewarding profession, supporting children to grow and flourish.

Therapy Assistants do not replace an Allied Health professionals and can not make or modify assessments, diagnosis or a treatment plan for a child.

Qualifications Required

Our Therapy Assistants need to be passionate about supporting children to reach their goals. You must be experienced or studying in the following areas:

  • Allied Health or Education students studying at university
  • Hold a Certificate or Diploma in Allied Health Assistance or Children’s service
  • Hold a Degree or higher certification as an Allied Health or Education trained professional
  • Hold the required police checks and certificates

All our staff are insured by us. We encourage and support further professional development for all our staff.

How It Works

We connect our Therapy Assistants with the child and parents/carers and the Allied Therapist.

Once the goals are clearly established by the Allied Therapist, Therapy Assistants then attend regular sessions with the child at the agreed location (home, educational or community settings) and time to support the child in achieving their goals.

At the end of each session, Therapy Assistants share information (notes and photos) about the session through our portal. This allows Families, Allied Therapists and Educators (if consented by the family) to keep up to date on the child's progress.

We check in regularly with our clients and staff to ensure regular reviews occur between Families, Allied Therapists and Therapy Assistants. Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme regulations, Therapy Assistants need to connect with the child’s Allied Therapist on a regular basis.
