Thinkahead’s ReachUp program
The ReachUp program is an evidence based service for individuals aged 0-18 years with a developmental delay or disability. We specialise in providing support in the areas of behaviour management, social and communication skills, learning/special education. We also have a recreational program which fosters social skills and community participation. All our programs are based on positive behaviour support strategies which aim to support individuals to share in family and community life and ensure they ReachUp to their full potential.
Behaviour Support can help with children who find learning difficult. If learning is difficult for your child, then your child’s behaviour might become challenging. Behaviour Support Specialists can assist you in at home, at school or out in the community – for example, at the shops. Behaviour support aims to reduce challenging behaviours and replace it with more productive behaviours and strategies to use in day to day life.
We are offering a variety of recreational programs for individuals aged 5-18. These activities are a combination of centre-based and excursion based activities. This is a great opportunity for young people to reach goals, laugh, make new friends and try something new! All programs provide support for all levels of development.. .
Our staff know that parents and carers can easily be overwhelmed by the unexpected journey they take with their children.
Our ReachUp program offers play based art lessons in your home with an experienced special needs art teacher. Art therapy is a unique therapy method for channeling behaviours.
Speech pathology is the identification and treatment of communication difficulties which affect a person’s ability to join in everyday life and learn at school.
My child accessed behaviour therapy from ReachUp. They were very flexible and visited us at preschool, home and helped us transition our daughter to primary school. I also attended a few of their group seminars and these were very beneficial. Thank you ReachUp.

My son loves the holiday program, he loves the staff and looks forward to attending.
Sarah has also helped me with practical information, support with my NDIS review and liaising with the agencies on my behalf.
She took the time to understand my son, liaise with school and others to best assess and creat the best behaviour plan for my son.
A great organization
