Private Paediatric health services for Babies and Toddlers

Mater Health and Wellness provides exceptional care and support to help families give their child the best start in life.

Our paediatric team of Audiologists, Dietitians, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Speech Pathologists are available for families who have concerns about their baby or toddler’s development including:

  • developmental milestones e.g. crawling, swallowing/chewing, reaching for and manipulating toys, talking. etc
  • sensitivities to sensory information e.g. touch, sound
  • play, socialisation and self-regulation
  • talking and communication milestones
  • adequate nutrition, fussy feeding routines, transitioning from tube to oral feeding

The paediatric services we provide are tailored to your child’s needs and your family situation. For your family’s convenience, we offer joint therapy appointments which enables you to see multiple specialists in the same appointment. Mater Health and Wellness can also conduct appointments for selected services via telehealth

Baby Development and Feeding Clinic

Mater Health and Wellness offers a speciality Baby Development and Feeding Clinic. 


Mater Health and Wellness encourages families to get their child’s hearing checked regularly to ensure their hearing and listening is within the normal range. Our paediatric audiologist performs hearing tests or central auditory processing assessments to diagnose hearing loss and listening difficulties in babies, toddlers and children, and will develop a management plan based on your child’s individual needs.


Our accredited paediatric dietitian can provide personalised diet and nutritional support to families with babies or toddlers with allergies or intolerances, weight management difficulties or fussy feeding routines.

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists can help babies and toddlers with developmental concerns or who experience sensitivity to sensory information, improve their everyday life skills such as playing, socialising and making friends, feeding, getting dressed, confidentially going to the toilet or developing their motor skills. We work closely with parents and families to help them better understand their child and support them to overcome challenges they face.

Speech Pathology

If you have concerns about your baby or toddler’s early speech or communication development, Mater Health and Wellness offers high quality assessment and therapy services to assist young children to:

  • talk more confidently
  • improve their speech clarity and language development
  • develop and improve their reading, writing and spelling.

Our paediatric speech pathologists work closely with parents and families so they can help with their child’s learning and development at home so they stay motivated and excited in between appointments.

We also treat babies and toddlers who experience difficulties with swallowing and chewing.


Our paediatric physiotherapist can help enhance your child’s physical development and functional performance. Utilising a combination of treatment, exercise, aids (where required) and education for parents, we develop an individualised treatment and management program to improve your child’s:

  • movement development and stability
  • balance
  • coordination
  • mobility or
  • posture
