OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational therapists (OT’s) promote health and wellbeing by enabling people to engage in activities that are meaningful to them. OT’s will consider a person’s skills, values and their environment to provide supports to increase participation and independence for every day tasks.   

Occupational therapists can support children and young people to: 

  • Show increased confidence and resilience through activities that accurately meet their skills and provide the “just right challenge”. 
     

  • Develop increased independence with self-care tasks such as hygiene, dressing, sleep and toileting. 
     

  • Build upon their skills to support independent living such as cooking, cleaning, budgeting and laundry skills.  
     

  • Understand and effectively manage sensory processing difficulties to support regulation.  
     

  • Further develop their play and social skills to enable them to build and maintain positive friendships.  
     

  • Develop an increased awareness of emotional regulation, and discover strategies to appropriately respond to various situations. 
     

  • Further develop their fine motor skills such as dexterity, manipulation, hand strength and bilateral coordination. 
     

  • Progress with their gross motor development including body awareness, core strength and balance.  

FORMAT

Occupational therapy sessions are booked in 10-session blocks to work towards identified goals made in collaboration with the family and therapist. Progress towards these goals will be reviewed at session 8 to determine if another block is required.
