Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy supports children and young people to achieve their potential by enabling engagement and participation in meaningful everyday activities.

Our occupational therapists can support parents and young people’s success in various settings including:

  • School
    (e.g. writing, reading, fine motor skills, learning, attention)
  • Home tasks
    (e.g. fitting in with family life, jobs, homework, getting self ready)
  • Play
    (e.g. imaginative play, social interaction, gross motor skills)
  • Self-care
    (e.g. bathing, dressing, eating, cutlery use, organising self)
  • Work
    (preparing a young person to be able to engage in the workplace)

We achieve extraordinary outcomes for young people through a combination of interventions including teaching and building skills, education, collaboration and environmental modification.
