How to refer a child to Sense Ability

Parent permission is required when referring a child to Sense Ability for assessment and therapy. Referral from a Paediatrician or GP is not required unless accessing government rebates.

Sense Ability requires payment for appointments at the time of the appointment. We do not bill for future appointments ahead of time and we do not require clients to sign contracts for the payment of future appointments.
