WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?
Occupational Therapy maximises your child's ability to participate in the everyday activities that they need to, want to or are expected to do like other children their age. Broadly speaking, it encompasses self care activities, pre school and school related activities and leisure/social activities. Intervention may look at modification to the task or environment and upskilling children, carers and educators to achieve successful outcomes.
Common issues addressed in Occupational Therapy include building independence in self care skills such as dressing and toileting, performing gross and fine motor skills, coordination and motor planning issues, attention and concentration, play and social skills, handwriting difficulties and sensory processing challenges.
