Giving your child skills for life

Is your child having difficulty with something they want or need to do? Occupational Therapy may help.

Foundations of Our Service

We are a values driven service that holds our foundations of developing and enabling connections, play, independence and participation central to everything we do.

What is Occupational Therapy?

“Occupations” are the everyday things we do that “occupy” our days. The things we want, need or are expected to do as an individual, part of a family group and/or as part of the community.

For a whole range of reasons, some kids can find it hard to do the things they want or need to do. A child’s “occupations” vary according to their age and stage of development, the context of their family and their community.

Children may experience difficulty with some or many of the skills these roles require. This is where OT can help! We work with you to decide what your child needs/wants/is expected to do, what specific aspects they are finding difficult, why these areas are presenting a challenge and, most importantly, strategies to overcome these challenges.

Services we offer

We offer a range of services and programs that can help your child. See how we can best help.

INDIVIDUAL SERVICES

Working with your child one on one allows us to focus intensively on development of skills that will help your child achieve their goals. We work individually with children across a variety of settings.

GROUP PROGRAMS

Our rich and varied group programs offer supportive social settings for your child to develop skills and grow with peers. Our programs are constantly evolving and offer something for everyone!

SPECIALIST SERVICES

We have the ability to customise support to provide intensive, innovative and unique programs and support options for your child. Our specialist support options are as unique as your child!

WORKSHOPS

Our workshops allow you to take some time out to learn and develop skills so you can best meet your child’s needs. Held throughout the year on a variety of topics, some are also offered as online self-paced formats.
