Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy promotes independence in everyday activities – the things that ‘occupy’ our time at home, day care, school and the community.

A child’s occupation typically includes:

  • self-care activities (eating, sleeping, going to the toilet, bathing, dressing, cooking)
  • play and leisure activities
  • social interactions
  • learning activities (school and day care tasks)

Occupational Therapists can help a child participate in these roles by promoting opportunities to develop skills, looking at the environment and activities and looking at what areas may be challenging. Areas that our occupational therapists may look at with you to support your child include:

  • Play skills
  • Eating – increasing food variety, spoon feeding
  • Toileting
  • School readiness skills – prewriting, scissor skills, drawing
  • Handwriting
  • Attention and concentration skills
  • Planning, problem solving and thinking
  • Social skills
  • Fine motor (using hands) and gross motor (whole body) coordination
  • Sensory processing – body awareness, sensory sensitivities
  • Emotional / sensory regulation

Our Occupational Therapists have attended a range of training including DIR Floortime, the ALERT programme, Zones of Regulation, Early Start Denver Model and SOS approach to feeding.
