For Children

Our paediatric occupational therapists are passionate about working with children and are skilled to target the following areas:
  • Gross motor skills (whole body movement involving the large core stabilising muscles of the body to perform everyday functions, such as standing, walking, running, and sitting upright. They also include hand-eye coordination, e.g., throwing, catching and kicking).
  • Fine motor skills (coordination of hands and fingers, e.g., doing up buttons and zips, using pencils, writing, and tying shoelaces).
  • Sensory processing (refers to the way the brain receives, organises and responds to sensory input in order to behave in a meaningful & consistent manner, e.g., sensitivities to loud noises or light, movement seeking, and meltdowns).
  • Attending and concentrating.
  • Self-care tasks, e.g., toileting and dressing.
  • Education for parents and carers.
