What is ACTT?

ACTT is a free allied health service for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander children that live in Dubbo, aged from birth to eight years. Our early intervention program aims to prepare children for school and meet their child developmental milestones.

ACTT offers Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Psychology services in collaboration with our Aboriginal Health Workers.

We are based at the Aboriginal Child and Maternal Hub at 157 Brisbane Street, Dubbo. We are funded by The Indigenous Australian Health Promotion (IAHP), Commonwealth Department of Health.
