Our collaborative approach is a key component of our work. We recognise that each child is unique, with their own set of difficulties, needs, abilities, and interests.

We will assess and build programmes utilising the most up-to-date research and technologies available.
Typical processes we follow:
- Informal discussions about the child’s challenges
- Collate information concerning child development, medical history, education, and areas of concern
- Teacher consultation about a child’s needs
- Standardized assessments
- Develop goals
- Creating a report containing observations and suggestions
- Activation of an evidence-based therapy programme
- Education for parents, caregivers, support workers, or teachers to assist them in implementing therapy on a daily basis
- Play-based therapy
Our clinicians deliver NDIS services that are tailored to the needs of each child. These services assist young people in performing daily chores such as tying their shoes, brushing their teeth, preparing their lunchboxes, riding their bikes, and attending school and interacting with others.
At Admire Care, we use a range of approaches to obtain the best results with our young clients.
Children have limited say in decisions affecting their lives and generally are unable to obtain redress when decisions are taken contrary to their best interests. Adults very often make significant decisions about children without consulting them or seeking to involve their participation in the decision making process. Children are rarely informed or consulted about new laws and policies that will have an impact on them. Our staff will tailor each support plan to each and every child we are working on, we will have a deep discussion with the family at the beginning to better understand what is required and how our organization can deliver the best service. Our organization is committed to supporting young people and children in care before and after contact with their birth family. Our company is dedicated to collaborating with the community, necessary agencies and specialized support agencies to address a child’s disability or special needs whilst observing the child’s legal and human rights. In working with other agencies, our organization works collaboratively with other support agencies to establish rapport, understand boundaries, maintain confidentiality, follow protocol, and follow risk management policies and procedures with an emphasis on establishing a safe environment for children.
Each family receives family-centred supports that are culturally inclusive, responsive, and focused on their strengths. Our organization is committed to supporting young people and children in care before and after contact with their birth family. To support the process, a clear contact plan created by the case manager in line with any relevant court orders will be documented in the child’s file. The document will clearly outline the conditions of contact, including legal specifications, which may include face-to-face contact, telephone calls, and the exchange of photographs and letters. Our organization will adhere to the following guiding principles with regard to a child’s contact with their parents, siblings, grandparents, cultural and community family, significant others, or ex-carers. Our organization also acknowledges that support to young persons and child in care prior to and after contact with their birth family is essential to the provision of a safe and supportive environment and the health and well-being of the child. The impact on the child could include changes to their behaviour or emotional state before or after family contact. Our staff is equipped to both support and manage the impact of the contact arrangements prior to and after the contact.
Support plans will be based on child and family choice and control and are undertaken with the family. Collaboration with the family will identify the family’s strengths, needs, and knowledge about their child, and based on this information support plans can be developed. Support plans will be flexible and individualized to reflect the child’s and family members’ preferences and learning styles. Support plans will be culturally responsive, and information and supports will be delivered in a clear, easy to understand and flexible manner by integration within the child’s daily routine.
Regardless of their history, race, culture, language, beliefs, gender, age, financial situation, level of ability, additional requirements, or family structure or lifestyle, all children should be treated equally and with respect. We support inclusive practises and enable the successful involvement of all children at our organisation, and we are committed to:
- Acknowledging and respecting the rights of all youngsters to be furnished with and take part in a best early adolescence schooling and care program
- Creating an surroundings that supports, reflects, and promotes equitable and inclusive behaviours and practices

- Working to make certain youngsters aren't discriminated towards on the idea of background, ethnicity, culture, language, ideals, gender, age, socioeconomic status, degree of capacity or extra needs, own circle of relatives shape or lifestyle
- Providing all youngsters with the possibility to get admission to packages on the provider, and spotting that each one households are particular and that youngsters research in one-of-a-kind methods and at one-of-a-kind rates and
- Consistently updating and helping the knowledge, skills, practices, and attitudes of personnel to inspire and make certain inclusion and equity.
Collaboration is integral to inclusion for children with developmental impediment or incapacity; fortunately it doesn’t occur easily. Admire Care is appropriately equipped to nurture collaborative partnerships with participants, families and groups through their daily relationships and practices. Admire Care works in collaboration with external agencies to deliver meaningful outcomes which are based on close relationships, trust and understanding.
Inclusion is an inherent right for all youngsters and is about essential participation and equal access, and the National Quality Standard (NQS) promotes collaboration as a part of Quality Area 6. Early childhood intervention was historically provided by block funded services, however, the new system of delivery is focused on providing choice and control to families deciding on when, where and how funds are to be spent in the NDIS plan.
Families are now frequently seeking early childhood intervention (ECI), practitioners, therapists or specialists to make everyday visits to the early childhood centres. The new system through NDIS makes collaboration with agencies, professional and specialists easier to deliver positive outcomes for participants.
In associate degree integrated service system, child protection services are a last-resort response and only 1 a part of the kid and family welfare service system wherever universal services type the inspiration.
Families characterised as having multiple and sophisticated issues are doubtless to own older either substance misuse problems, mental state problems or violence or a mix of the three. Such families are likely to be living among a context of isolation and disadvantage, golf shot youngsters at even bigger risk of abuse and neglect. It is, therefore, no surprise that families with multiple and complex problems are the first shopper group in child protection services.
Admire Care understands that family is the only sustainable relationship a child will ever have and so invests in building the capacity of the family through our education program. Admire Care works to enhance service provision for such families, establishing an integrated service system which may strengthen the capacity of early intervention and prevention services, which may ease demand on statutory child protection services.
Evidence Informed Practice
Evidence-based practice is the integration of research evidence with clinical expertise and unique patient values.
The key points are:
- The evidence of effectiveness is strongest for ‘targeted-indicated’ programs, where targeting is based on early signals of risk in child development (i.e., issues have been pre-identified, but families are not considered to be concerns of child protection).
- Individual therapy and home visiting are the delivery mechanisms for targeted-indicated programs backed by the strongest evidence.
- Attachment-focused programs are relatively high impact but also costly.
- Behaviour-focused programs are, when targeted, effective at reducing the negative impact of existing problems but are not effective at preventing problems from arising.
- There are proportionally more evidence-based behaviour-focused programs than attachment- or learning-focused programs.
Outcome Based Approach
At Admire Care, we recognise that outcome based practice focuses on the impact of the support and care we provide to a person and how this may affect the end result and their life. This allows us to provide effective services and achieve positive outcomes.
Planning and service delivery can be based on outcomes for several reasons:
- If we are unclear about the outcomes we want to achieve, we will not be able to achieve positive results.
- The services we provide are likely to be less effective and we are less likely to choose proven effective methods in delivering services.
Therefore we have adopted an outcomes-based approach that involves the following steps:
- Identify the outcomes sought
- Translate these outcomes into specific objectives
- Select strategies for achieving these objectives
- Transform the strategies into specific activities or programs
- Identify indicators to measure the progress made
- Deliver the services and activities
- Monitor the delivery of services and activities
- Evaluate the impact of services and activities
- Review the outcomes, strategies, and service delivery
We provide holistic care to our clients, focusing on the wellbeing of the whole person, not just their condition. We support the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of our clients.
