Children’s Mobility Service provides a variety of group programs and camps throughout the year. Traditionally our camps take place in the Victorian School holidays.
Due to the Coronavirus in 2020 the April camp and July camp have been cancelled and the September camp is on hold at this time.
In the meantime the CMS team are busy designing group activities that continue to engage your child whilst developing their Orientation and Mobility skills and independence with Activities of daily living. These group activities will be delivered via telepractice.
Please watch this space to learn more about the activities or register your interest in the activities by calling 1800 804 805
The Children’s Mobility Service is excited to offer a range of camps and group programs during 2020. Our group programs aim to offer Orientation and Mobility and Occupational Therapy training in a dynamic setting. Students have the opportunity to develop independent skills considerate of their age and current personal goals. A group program also provides children with vision loss and their families’ social engagement with their peers. Please note that due to the redevelopment of our Kew campus, all group programs will be held offsite in suitable community-based accommodation during 2020.
Places are limited on all camps. We prioritise attendance based on:
- Previous attendance on camp
- Skill development opportunity for the individual student
- Specific referral from the students Orientation and Mobility Specialist
- Alignment with individual goals
- Completion of all relevant application material
We encourage families to consider camp opportunities when building their NDIS plan. GDV is an approved provider of services under NDIS and NDIS recognizes the benefits the camps have on students achieving their goals. We welcome applications to camp whether the student is on NDIS or if the student is ineligible for NDIS.
