Occupational Therapy

Live life independently

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy (OT) helps you maximise your independence by improving your ability to perform everyday tasks.

Do you struggle with routine tasks like getting dressed, making a coffee, or going shopping?

Is your child missing age-appropriate milestones, avoiding certain textures, or struggling to relate to their peers? 

Our team of general and paediatric OTs use evidence-based techniques to help you overcome barriers, achieve goals and improve your quality of life. They identify struggles, find weaknesses, and provide practical solutions. 

OTs help you to do the things you need to do, and the things you want to do, as independently as possible.

Paediatric Occupational Therapy

Our paediatric OTs work with babies, children, and adolescents, helping them reach their potential at home, school, and play. Paediatric occupational therapy focuses on development, growth, and learning by helping with:

  • Fine Motor Skills- i.e. writing
  • Gross Motor Skills- i.e. coordination and movement.
  • Visual-Perception Skills- understanding and responding to things they see.
  • Sensory Processing- learning, understanding, and responding to sight, sound, touch, and taste.
  • Social Skills- playing and engaging with others
  • Self-Care- eating, toileting, dressing, etc.
  • Other Abilities- attention and concentration, emotional regulation, etc.

Occupational therapy for paediatrics is based around play and aims to help children develop confidence, improve their participation in the world around them, and develop independence.

If you have concerns about your child’s development, paediatric occupational therapy may help.

General Occupational Therapy

Our general OTs work with people of all ages and all abilities. Helping you achieve your goals in the home, workplace and community.

We help you maximise your independence, and rise above physical, cognitive, sensory, and psychosocial challenges.
Your OT will assess your needs, condition, and goals and then work with you to develop a personalised plan

  • Dressing
  • Grooming
  • Toileting
  • Household tasks
  • Mobility
  • Communication
  • Social interaction
  • Recreational activities

We provide you with ongoing support to help you live life as independently as possible. Occupational therapy empowers you to do the things you want to do and the things you need to do.

What happens with a daycare visit?

Do you think your child might benefit from having occupational therapy sessions at daycare?

For many families, school or daycare-based occupational therapy sessions are an ideal option. Not only is it more convenient for time-poor families, but OT visits at school and daycare can help your child to achieve learning goals, decrease school absences, and foster relationships between peers and teachers.

Your child will attend their OT sessions in school or daycare hours then be given ‘homework’. This will include skills to practise at home, between daycare sessions.

OT daycare visits aim to increase confidence and abilities, helping your little person thrive in their environment.
