AGE GROUPS

The Kameleon Group offers behavoural change services for all ages

Support for Parents

Balancing Kameleons offer support groups and workshops for parents. Parenting can be one of the most rewarding roles in life, but it can also be one of the most challenging. At Kameleon Group, we believe that with the right tools and support, parents can do more than just survive, they can THRIVE!

Come along to one of our workshops, or parent support groups, meet other parents, and get real about the challenges we all face as parents. Share ideas, learn some new strategies and insights that will help you THRIVE as a parent!

Adults (17 – 60 years of age)

Kapable Kameleons offer individualised support for adults. Living life as independently as possible is the goal for all adults. When you live with a disability, you may be facing extra challenges, and may at times use behaviours of concern to communicate your wants and needs.  At Kameleon Group, we believe that each individual person has the ability to be the best they can be.

Our process begins with a comprehensive assessment of your current skills then we design an individualised learning program that will work toward you gaining new skills. These new skills will assist you to increase your independence, communicate your needs in a new way, whilst increasing your choice and control over your life.

Teenagers (12 – 16 years of age)

Kamo Kameleons are for those in their teenage years. These years are filled with challenges and choices, for everyone. Navigating this confusing world can be tricky! At Kameleon Group, we have some good news. We believe that it is possible to learn the skills you need to fit in, find friends and plan to live an independent life.

We will walk beside you, develop a positive behaviour support plan, and a skills development plan and work with you towards achieving them! We offer individualised and group supports in a comfortable environment.

Older children & Preadolescents (7 – 11 years of age)

Kool Kameleons are for children from 7 years of age to 11 years of age. This is usually the time that many children are beginning to experience levels of distress, worry and confusion. If a child is displaying behaviours of concern, and/or they do not yet have the skill to transition, accept ‘no’, wait or share, they can live with a high level of stress every single day.

Often it may be that one environment is more challenging for them than another. Or that they can hold it together for some of their day, but just cannot get through a whole day, without communicating their distress through behaviours of concern.

This is a critical age, and a time that all children need to learn some key skills, to prepare them for adolescents. We offer individualised assessment and group supports to decrease behaviours of concern whilst concurrently teaching the child new skills, to adapt and be a “Kool Kameleon”.

Younger Children (4 – 6 years of age)

Jumping Kameleons are for younger children from 3 years to 6 years of age. Little people at this age are filled with curiosity about their world, and there is so much to learn! Our Early Intervention Specialists will undertake a comprehensive assessment, map out the key skill areas to increase, and develop a learning program to teach the child these skills.

We partner with parents and other practitioners to deliver a fluid, consistent and effective program to your child. Decreasing behaviours of concern, increasing skill areas, whilst concurrently supporting parents, is what we do best. We have a fully equipped therapy room and a welcoming and comfortable space for parents. Our aim is to create an environment where children ‘want’ to be. You can come to us, or we can come to you.

Toddlers (2 – 3 years of age)

Crawling Kameleons are our toddlers, from 2 – 3 years of age. We have Early Intervention Specialists that partner with parents and other practitioners to provide the critical supports for tiny people beginning to explore their world.

You may be still navigating the world of supports and still not having any diagnosis for your child, or you may have recently received your child’s diagnosis. It is a time when our staff want to support you and your child. Our comprehensive assessment process will provide a guide for the path ahead. We will plan every step with you, and ensure that you are always listened to.
