OT

Occupational therapy provides support to participants whose health or disability prevents them from performing activities they would like to do in their daily life. An occupational therapist can identify strengths and difficulties participants may have in daily life and plan such as:

  • Improving their ability to look after themselves. i.e. Dressing, hygiene
  • Fine motor skills (Hand and eye coordination. I.e. handwriting, fastening clothing etc)
  • Gross motor skills (Moving arms, legs and torso to walk, run, throw, lift)
  • Moving around more easily in physical environments (movement and coordination)
  • Emotional regulation
  • Transition to school
  • Cognitive skills (Remembering, paying attention, reasoning)
  • Improve social/play skills (sharing, playing)
  • Attention to completing tasks
  • Encourage their ability to try health food options
  • Sensory skills (touch, smell, taste, vision and hearing)

The aim of our assessment process is to formulate an understanding of the presenting issues that will guide the best course of intervention.

Community Visits / School, kindergarten, childcare or home visits

Our Clinicians are able to observe your child in their environment and encourage them to focus on their goals:

  • Observe a child in the classroom or in the home environment with their:
    • Social skills and relationships
    • Play development skills
  • Attend a Student Support Group meeting to monitor and tailor the support provided to the student.

These requests can generally be accommodated by schools and complement holistic student planning and support processes.
