Empowering Children to Thrive

At Melville OT, we specialise in helping children grow and embrace their uniqueness. We offer a variety of auditory interventions, including the renowned Integrated Listening Systems (iLs) programs, Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) and Therapeutic Listening (TL)

Through close partnerships with local schools, organisations, and professionals, we help children flourish with the tailored support they need.

Our History

Melville was set up by Jean Loth (OT) in 2001 and the reins were handed over to Alycia Keys (OT), a long time employee of the practice, in 2022. The practice is now owned and operated by Alycia and her husband Gordon.

Alycia and Gordon added a sister company, Calming Kids Australia to the mix in 2023. Calming Kids Australia is a long running online store selling therapy, sensory and educational products. The store was initially established by a parent, Diana Young in 2006.
