Our renowned and unique autism early intervention service has expanded into a bespoke Early Intervention Therapy Centre to offer our exceptional services to more families. With high-level local and national clinical governance and expertise, Early Start Hawthorn offers our Early Start Denver Model programs and transdisciplinary paediatric services. Our client group is predominantly young children identified on the spectrum and their families who we support to meet their developmental goals in a safe, warm, nurturing space. Our team consists of speech pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, educators, behaviour analysts and early intervention therapists who are all passionate about early play-based interventions.
Early Start Australia is a national multidisciplinary allied health organisation committed to delivering evidence-based early intervention and therapy services to children and their families.
As an organisation Early Start Australia prioritises building a fantastic team culture and working with children and their families to make a real difference to everyday lives of our clients.
What we offer you:
Early Start Australia is a national organisation - our clinics offer you the small practice feel with big corporate support. We have friendly and well-organised administration teams booking appointments, invoicing and managing NDIS changes, leaving our therapists to get on with what is most important to them.
When you join us, you will have access to some of the best brains across Australia. Early Start Australia provides additional professional leave days on top of your annual leave; a professional development budget for each therapist; monthly in-house training; and regular supervision.

In addition to a competitive salary and the incredible professional development and supervision on offer, you will also have access to performance incentives, our Mental Health and Wellbeing Program, paid parental leave and a discount marketplace with hundreds of products at reduced prices from groceries to movie tickets.
The role will provide effective and efficient evidenced-based occupational therapy within the allocated caseload of Early Intervention Programs. The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) is our evidence based early intervention program we provide to children under school age.
You will work in a transdisciplinary model alongside other health professionals such as Speech Pathologists, Psychologists, Special Education Teachers and Behaviour Therapists. You will also be responsible for individual occupational therapy assessments and intervention services in our Allied Health Teams. This position enables you to work collaboratively in a transdisciplinary team while still maintaining and enhancing your own clinical skills within your own caseload.
