Paediatric Occupational Therapy

Who are we?

Paediatric Occupational Therapists are health professionals trained in the medical and behavioural sciences including neurology, anatomy, and psychology.

What do we do?

We aim to develop children's physical abilities, creative thinking and social skills - all essential for confident interactions and successful play. Our work involves the assessment and treatment of the child's sensory, physical, academic, social and emotional abilities.

Who do we help?

Parents and teachers often notice that something is not quite right with a child's development.
Sometimes a child requires professional advice and intervention.
Occupational Therapy intervention may be a short-term boost or a long-term process to build and align skills, not just to match the average child but to also realise his/her own potential, needs and dreams.

We love working with special little people.

Children of all ages, stages and abilities including, but not limited to:
Handwriting Difficulties, Letter Reversals Difficulty, Maintaining an Upright Sitting Posture,
Concentration & Attention Difficulties, Delayed Milestones, Difficulty Holding a Pencil/Crayon,
Difficulty Learning to Cut with Scissors
