Female health and wellbeing is a diverse topic – there are many wellbeing considerations that are unique to females in the pre-teen age group and impact how we live our lives. In WELL Girls we present this information in a developmentally appropriate manner, which supports girls with autism or developmental delay to learn at their own pace, and in their own way. The subjects we cover include:
- menstruation and pelvic health – understanding and functionally managing periods and building good toileting and pelvic health habits for life.
- body development and personal hygiene – What’s happening to my body and why? How do I care for it?
- hormonal changes of puberty – and how these affect us physically and
emotionally at this time of life,
- friends, frenemies and bullies
‘Well Girls’ is suitable for girls aged 8-16 with an Autism Spectrum Disorder who are starting out on their Well Girls journey.
All new clients to Bloom Wellbeing will need to complete a 30 minute Group Program Screening Interview with our Group Program Coordinator prior to enrolling in a program. This ensures we place the client in the correct program to see them flourish. The Screening Interview costs $43.69 and is claimable under NDIS. Ideally, this would be completed with yourself, the parent/guardian.
Appointments can be booked online here, please put in the comments if it will be in person, over the phone or zoom. Or alternatively you can call the clinic on (08) 7228 0248
The full cost of this program is $792.04.
A $43.39 screening consult fee is also payable for new clients only.
Group costs may be claimable under your NDIS plan, providing the group meets your NDIS plan goals. This will be covered in your screening interview, if you want more information.
Please note: Agency managed NDIS clients will not be able to claim the cost of this program on their NDIS plan, as we are not a registered NDIS provider.
