Occupational Therapy

Develop skills for everyday activities

Our Occupational Therapists (OT’s) help your child develop skills to participate in everyday activities. We help your child to build confidence & independence to reach their potential.


Our OTs can help your child to:

  • Develop self- help skills like brushing teeth, getting dressed and using the bathroom
  • Improve fine motor skills to help with writing, drawing & other school ready activities
  • Reach developmental milestones
  • Develop social, emotional & cognitive skills by learning through play
  • Manage sensory experiences

Our Early Years Occupational service provides the best therapy & support for your child.

We will help your child to build their strengths by breaking down challenging activities into manageable steps. We can also assist with:

  • Home and environment modifications to help your child live as independently as possible
  • Selection, assessment and prescriptions for mobility equipment, such as a hoist, showerchair, and pressure relief mattresses
  • Quality assessments and comprehensive reports with recommendations
