Occupational therapy aims to help children participate and engage in everyday life by addressing cognitive, physical, sensory, motor and social-emotional developmental difficulties that impact their engagement and participation in daily life.
It aims at enhancing their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
Our Occupational Therapists are chosen very carefully, as it is very important to us that we can provide children with the opportunities they need to overcome the many challenges that life throws at them.
All of our team members are highly motivated and driven professionals who have a genuine passion to provide the best care possible to all children in need.
We work directly with clients, their families and other associated professionals to create individualised plans to address the child’s current areas of need and provide support to families to have the capacity to continue to implement these plans within the home and school environment.
We recognise the importance of a child’s relationship with their family, school and therapist so we work to emphasise this through positive interactions and creating a successful environment for the child.
We use a bottom-up approach as we believe that the foundation of skills need to be established before higher level skills can be developed. By developing a strong foundation generalising skills to functional age-based levels becomes much easier for the child.
Our Occupational therapists provide assessments, consultations, and treatment to address each child’s goals in his/her areas of need including:
- Sensory processing and sensory defensiveness
- Sensory integration
- Gross motor skills
- Fine motor skills
- Social skills
- Play skills
- Executive functioning skills
- Self-regulation and coping strategies
- Mealtime help
- Motor planning
- Visual-motor integration
- Visual perception
- Self-care and toilet training advice
Our Occupational therapists draw upon their extensive training to provide specific, challenging therapeutic activities in the context of play with an aim to facilitate a child’s abilities and skills.
Both individual and group services are available to facilitate meaningful occupational engagement in daily life activities.
School and preschool based therapy are also available.
