Why Occupational Therapy?

We work with children to help them achieve their daily occupations such as self-care, school and play so as to enhance their confidence, self-esteem, social skills and general wellbeing. We evaluate a child’s current skill set in relation to play, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally suitable for that age group. We can assist children to perform the daily activities they may find overwhelming by addressing sensory, social, behavioral, motor, and environmental issues.

How we Help
Rhythmic Movement Training

A range of movements designed to integrate a child’s primitive reflexes to develop the foundations essential to overcoming learning, sensory, emotional and behavioural challenges.

You can find more information regarding this approach on Rhythmic Movement Training International here.

Sensory Integration

Helping children to process and respond to sensory experiences like touch, movement, sight, sound, smell, taste and the pull of gravity to overcome complex learning and behaviour.

You can find more information regarding this approach on Pathways.org here.

Groups and Programs

Group Programs are a great way to work on a specific set of skills in a social setting with peers of a similar age and skill level.

Groups are allocated based on need. NDIS funded and diagnosed children with developmental or behavioural challenges are in small groups. Private clients, with specific concerns or challenges who participate positively in a mainstream classroom are in larger groups. 

Some popular Occupational Therapy specific groups include: 

  • Handwriting Heroes
  • Fine Motor Club
  • We Thinkers (Social Thinking Skills)
  • Messy Monsters (Messy Play Program for sensitive systems and seeking systems)
  • Engine Program (Attention Regulation Program)
