PITS Funding

Recently, PCH has increased the amount of PITS funding received following interventions at the hospital such as botox or surgery. The PITS Funding now aligns with the NDIS Physiotherapy rate received in Western Australia. This is a significant increase in sessions able to be accessed following these interventions. 

As the funding is designed for rehabilitation or maximising the effects  ‘post-intervention,’ PITS funding with Little Bodies Therapy will be required to be utilised in an intensive format, with a minimum of 3 times weekly appointments, or by completing a two-week intensive block. To ensure you are able to maximise your child's therapy funding, we recommend PITS be used for completion of intensive therapy blocks and NDIS funding be utilised for regular ongoing appointments.

If you have any queries or concerns in regards to use of PITS funding, please feel free to discuss this with your therapist.

School Term Intensives

Did you know we now offer year-round intensives?

We have the following intensive hours available for physiotherapy, cage therapy or CME therapy:

  • 9:30am
  • 10:30am
  • 11:30am
  • 2.00pm

With back-to-back times available, we are able to offer 2- or 3-hour intensives depending on your child's goals and if this is suitable or indicated for your child.

If your child hasn't completed intensive therapy before, we recommend discussing with your therapist how many hours may be suitable for your child to complete.

For dates or to register your interest, please visit our website.

July School Holiday Intensives

Our 2-week physiotherapy intensive blocks will be taking place again over the July school holidays and are almost booked out!

If you would like to organise an intensive during the July school holidays and haven’t already contacted us, please do so soon as spaces are limited!

Please note, whilst we do try and accomodate all requests, as spaces are limited, priority will be given to school-age children during the holiday period. If your child is not yet at school, please consider whether an intensive block during the school term may suit your child's schedule.
