When you extend with our Australian program (Apex Professional Exchange) as a care professional, you have the opportunity to work closely with a range of therapy professionals to support your host child and broaden your experience. The majority of families in the Australian program have children with special needs and are looking for a therapy assistant to work with their child to reach their goals.

Prior to starting with one of our amazing Australian families, you will receive a comprehensive care plan that details your host child’s needs and what your responsibilities will be when you are working with them. We work with families to create this and to plan that details how you are going to work with the family and the wider therapy and support team.

Life in Australia

We work with families in many locations across Australia, and have placed care professionals with families all over the country. There are many things to see and do! When you join the Australian program you can connect with our Australian team and current care professionals to learn more about living in Australia and the experiences you can have.
