Child & Family Support

Child and Family Support

What is Child and Family Support? 

Child and Family Support utilises a whole-family approach to support your child’s development. The primary aim of CFS is to maximise child and family engagement, relationships, and overall family functioning. This highly individualised service aims to meet the child and family where they are at and work on what is most important to them.

What can we work on with our Child and Family Therapist? 

Child and family support works in three key areas: parent support, relationship support, and diagnosis support. Areas that might be addressed in each key area include: 

Parent and family support

  • Parenting support – building confidence and strategies that work for you 
  • Navigating differences in parenting styles 
  • Promoting positive family dynamics  
  • Empowering families with knowledge and skills to support themselves and their child/children 
  • Family separation  
  • Reducing stress in the family and everyday routines  
  • Exploration of overall family and child needs and connection to appropriate formal supports that cater to these needs  

Relationship support

  • Promoting engagement in play with your child 
  • Building confidence in engagement  
  • Understanding your child, their behaviour and how to maximise connection 

Diagnosis support  

  • Navigating/processing a new diagnosis  
  • Accessing information and gaining knowledge 
  • How to discuss a diagnosis with your child and the important people in their life 

* Child and Family Support is a highly individualised service and therefore may look different for every child and family.  

Do I need to be involved in my child’s CFS Service? 

Yes. All Stronger Together Foundation services are family-centred with the aim to build the capacity of the family in supporting their child long-term. A CFS service will collaborate and involve all key people in your child’s life throughout the entire process.   

How can child and family support services at the Stronger Together Foundation be funded? 

Child and Family Support services can vary depending on the time needed per session and travel requirements. Services can be funded using your child’s NDIS package. Alternatively, if you are not eligible for NDIS funding, services can be funded by private funding, Medicare, or private health insurance.
