What is Paediatric Occupational Therapy?
Paediatric Occupational Therapy is a specialised field that focuses on helping children develop the skills needed for daily activities and tasks. These activities include self-care, play, social interactions, and academic performance. Our experienced Occupational Therapists work collaboratively with children and their families to address developmental delays, sensory processing difficulties, and other challenges.
Our Approach to Paediatric Occupational Therapy
Our Occupational Therapists conduct thorough assessments to identify individual strengths and areas of improvement, forming the foundation for personalized intervention plans.
We believe in the power of play as a fundamental tool for learning and development. Play-based therapy engages children in activities that are both fun and purposeful, fostering skill acquisition in a natural and enjoyable way.
For children with sensory processing difficulties, our therapists utilise sensory integration techniques to help regulate and respond appropriately to sensory stimuli, promoting improved attention, behaviour, and overall function.
Fine Motor and Handwriting Skills:
Focused interventions to enhance fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and handwriting abilities, ensuring children can participate confidently in academic tasks.
We work on developing independence in self-care activities such as dressing, feeding, and grooming, empowering children to navigate daily routines with confidence.
