Occupational Therapy

What’s it all about?

Occupational Therapists work with children to enable them to participate in activities of everyday life. Occupational Therapists can help support children’s development of skills in a number of areas, including:

  • Fine motor
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Visual perception
  • Sensory needs
  • Play
  • Learning
  • Self-help skills

KidzWish Occupational Therapists work with families, caregivers, preschools, schools and community organisations to support children.

  • Family centred goals and intervention based on an individualised plan with a focus on inclusion.
  • Flexible therapy services that cater to each family’s individual circumstance.
  • A range of service options including individual therapy, group therapy services, collaborative intervention with schools and preschools, and transition support.
  • A range of service locations offered for therapy services including sessions in our clinic, at home, school or preschool or in the community.
