Occupational Therapy for Children
Our Occupational Therapy team help children with any condition, disability or impairment that affects the ability to perform everyday activities
A child’s “occupation” centres around play and learning.
Our Occupational Therapy team help children with any condition, disability or impairment that affects the ability to perform everyday activities. We can provide services within the clinic, kinder, school, home and community environments.
We can help with:
- Help children achieve their developmental milestones such as fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination to help with play, school or independent skills (e.g throwing a ball, getting dressed, holding a pen or utensil)
- Educate and involve parents, carers and others to facilitate the development and learning of children
- Help children with developmental delays learn everyday tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves)
- Help children with behavioural issues maintain positive behaviours in all environments (e.g., instead of hitting others or acting out, using positive ways to deal with anger, such as writing about feelings or participating in a physical activity)
We also work with children with emotional and arousal regulation difficulties, anxiety and life transitions (starting Prep and Secondary School).
