Why use an Occupational Therapist?

You may find that your child has difficulties in performing simple daily tasks, such as handwriting, concentrating, dressing, eating and socialising. You may feel frustrated sometimes and powerless to help.

An Occupational Therapist is trained to identify the underlying cause of these problems. Once the issues are identified a plan can be set into place to help and assist in building life skills, enabling children to participate in everyday tasks.

All children are different and while some may only need a little therapy others may need more. Once you understand the problems there are many strategies that can easily be implemented at home and in the classroom to help your child get the most out of each and every day. Understanding is the key and once you have it you will quickly start to notice the difference in your child’s development and behaviour.

Our Life Skills 4 Kids Occupational Therapists utilise a range of advanced practice techniques and programs including Advanced Therapy Programs.
