Paediatric Occupational Therapy

Our paediatric occupational therapists assist children in performing “occupations” with the greatest level of independence possible. Childhood occupations include learning in school and playing with friends.

Occupational Therapy for Children

Our highly experienced and dedicated paediatric occupational therapists take a developmental approach to address areas of physical ability (fine and gross motor skills), sensory processing and modulation, handwriting skills, visual motor skills, and self-help skills. We use a wide range of therapeutic equipment and techniques to best help your child achieve his or her goals. Parents are also encouraged to participate in therapy sessions as they are an integral part of the child’s treatment.
