Royal Far West sees children from across rural and remote NSW with complex developmental needs. The Windmill program is our disability specific, fee for service offering that provides children with access to an immersion week of therapy on site in Manly, as well as in Community. We also deliver therapy via telecare to children who have accessed a week of therapy so as to provide continuity of care. Families may also choose to only access therapy via this modality into school, pre-school or home. Therapy staff consist of Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Dietician and Special Educators.
