    Occupational therapy

    Occupational Therapists support individuals and families to participate in the activities of their daily life. These activities may include self-care tasks, playing with others, fine motor and gross motor activities and engaging in school or work tasks. Occupational Therapists work with individuals to develop the skills needed to engage in functional activities, whilst also considering adaptation of tasks and the environment. They also support the understanding of an individuals sensory preferences and differences that impact upon the tasks they need to engage in.

    Our Occupational Therapist's work with individuals, parents and others to develop a support program that best meets the individual’s goals in order to develop independence. The Occupational Therapist provides information, guidance and resources to assist the individual, parents and others to foster and promote the development of these skills and to help the individual participate meaningfully and independently in the activities of their daily life.
