Our multidisciplinary and expert Brisbane paediatric therapy and facilitator team supports young people of all abilities (0-25 years old) to participate in occupations and activities that are meaningful, fun and engaging to them. Our services and programs just happen* to also work towards social, emotional, physical, creative, community, learning and career aspirations and goals.

A8 is conveniently located in the heart of Brisbane’s Toowong suburb across two campus’; A8 Studio (Ground Floor, 80 Jephson Street, Toowong) - home to our dance, yoga, drama, arts, and group based programs, and A8 Therapy Hub (Level 1, 34 Sherwood Road, Toowong) - our modern and fully equipped therapy spaces opening February 2019. All of A8’s inclusive programs and therapies are covered by NDIS regardless of whether you are self-managed, plan managed or agency managed.

A8 also partners with a number of local organisations including Brisbane Boys’ College and Stepz Fitness Toowong to host our Ninja, Movement and Gym programs.

*after careful, deliberate and evidence-based design

Ava, 5 years, Ballerina & Ninja

It has meant Ava can do gymnastics like her sister but in a non-judgemental environment. It’s great socially and a fun activity that has major benefits but doesn’t feel like therapy for the kids. Ava has gained much more confidence when doing gross motor activities and even her ECDP commented that she has become stronger on the obstacles.

Oscar, 3 years, TheraDancer & Ninja

The most engaged I’ve seen Oscar in a OT session in 18 months!

Isla, 12 years, Ballerina, Ninja, Insider Outer

Active Eight is a truly remarkable experience for all our family. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly which makes it a pleasure to attend any of the activities on offer. I can't recommend it enough. For Isla in particular, it has meant engaging with her local community in a way that was not possible before.

Active Eight is such a unique program for the kids in an amazing setting. Alex wouldn’t let me keep her away :)
