Windmill Program Virtual Immersion Therapy via Telecare
We deliver disability support services through our Windmill program, a therapy intervention service for children with an NDIS plan who are living in outer metro and regional communities.
The program has been created specifically for children aged from 2-12 who have autism, intellectual disability, developmental or global delay. By taking part in our Windmill program, your child will receive personalised support from our team of specialists to help them achieve their goals.
Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are able to offer our multi-disciplinary Windmill program via video link (Telecare) to deliver individualised immersion therapy directly you and your child at home – an effective and easy way for you to receive therapy. All you need is a computer or laptop with a webcam, microphone and speaker and access to high-speed internet.

About Virtual Immersion Therapy
Our virtual immersion therapy is ideal for those looking to achieve specific goals and can be delivered in one-week, two-week or month-long programs by our highly specialised team. This approach provides a unique opportunity to view your child in their natural environment and helps parents or carers facilitate therapy in the home with the support of our Royal Far West clinicians.
We can support with self-care skills such as:
- Daily living tasks like brushing teeth
- Preparing for transition to school
- Supporting behaviour development
- Managing fussy eating
- Building social skills and confidence
Your Windmill Journey
Joining our Windmill program is simple, and we’ll be there every step of the way to make sure you’re getting the support you need.
- Step 1: Getting to know you– We start by listening to you to understand your childs’ strengths and goals to develop a personalised support plan.
- Step 2: Planning– Our Service Planner will guide you step-by-step through the planning of your supports.
- Step 3: Service delivery– We’ll introduce you to your focused support team, which may include a special educator, social worker, psychologist, occupational therapist and/or speech pathologist.
- Step 4: Review– We recognise your childs’ goals will most likely change over time so at the end of the program we review how your child is progressing against their goals, and discuss future goals and support requirements.
Other ways to access our services
Windmill Telecare is a program you can choose to access alongside Windmill Immersion Therapy. Telecare provides longer-term therapy solutions conducted in regular one-on-one* video link therapy sessions with your child to continue supporting their development in any of our Windmill service areas.
Your Service Planner will be able to discuss all options with you when developing your support plan.
*Children will always have an adult next to them (e.g. Education Support Staff or parent) to help the clinicians deliver the care.
In-home programs and resources
By joining up to our Windmill program, you will also gain access to a range of home-based programs and resources to help with your child’s progress.
Your clinicians can guide you through ways to incorporate therapy into everyday activities so that your child is still accessing therapy but is too busy having fun to know it.

The NDIS (or National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a government initiative, which has been put into place to help improve access to services for anyone with disabilities.
Implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), the Scheme allows its participants and their families to choose the sort of help they need and receive it in a way that suits them, whether that be emotionalassistance, intervention therapies, information services, community health services or other types of support.
The NDIA works with NDIS participants to develop plans tailored to the needs of the individual. Participants will then receive a funding package, which they can allocate to the services that best meet their needs.
The level of financial assistance provided will relate directly to the individual’s requirements, and can be adjusted to suit your child’s changing needs and circumstances.
