Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with children, young adults and their families to maximise development. Occupational Therapy programs work on participation in preschool, school and home activities to enhance a child’s and their family’s quality of life.

  • Learning e.g. remembering things, planning, problem-solving, organisation
  • Self-care e.g. dressing, toileting, brushing teeth, washing, tying shoelaces
  • Play and social skills
  • Sensory, behavioural and emotional regulation e. g. helping to stay calm and alert to support other learning
  • Visual awareness and communicating e.g. reading, spelling and general learning within the classroom
