Children newly diagnosed with a neurological condition can have ongoing need for therapy once they leave hospital. One of the support programs Brainwave can offer these children and families is assistance through funding of approved therapy programs.
Currently the therapies we support include but are not limited to:
- speech therapy
- music therapy
Each family’s needs are unique and in fairness, each case is decided individually.
Funding applications are reviewed at the end of each month and applicants are notified thereafter.
The funding program is open between February to November each year. Applications received in December and January will be reviewed in February.
What is the eligibility criteria?
- Any child up to the age of 18, with a diagnosed neurological condition, is eligible for support through Brainwave.
- The child and family/carer need to be registered with Brainwave Australia.
