Comprehensive Occupational Therapists

At our center, we are proud to offer comprehensive paediatric occupational therapy, designed to support children with developmental delays, sensory processing issues, and other neurological or physical conditions. Central to our therapy is our state-of-the-art sensory gym, equipped with a wide array of innovative resources that provide an ideal environment for children to explore, learn, and grow.

Our sensory gym is a dynamic space filled with specialised equipment and stimuli, designed to aid in the development of fine and gross motor skills, sensory integration, and self-care abilities. Whether it’s navigating through challenging obstacle courses, engaging in tactile activities, or exploring various sensory experiences, our gym provides a safe and stimulating environment for therapeutic activities.

Our occupational therapists utilise extensive resources to create engaging and creative therapy sessions. By combining skill-building with play, we help children develop crucial life skills in an enjoyable and meaningful way. This not only fosters independence and confidence but also ensures that therapy is a fun and rewarding experience.

We place a strong emphasis on family involvement in our therapy approach. Recognising that a child’s success is bolstered by support at home, we equip parents and caregivers with effective strategies and insights to extend the benefits of therapy into the home environment.

Our clinic is filled with a magnitude of resources and tools, ensuring that we can cater to the diverse and specific needs of each child. For families seeking flexible and accessible care, we offer our services both in our well-equipped clinic and through mobile visits. This ensures that every child has the opportunity to thrive and excel in their everyday lives, with the support of our dedicated and skilled team.

Holistic Occupational Therapy Approach at LEAP Centre

At LEAP Centre, we take pride in delivering holistic occupational therapy services that cater to the diverse needs of every child. Our comprehensive approach encompasses various facets of child development, including fine and gross motor skills, sensory processing, regulation, attention, self-care, visual-motor coordination, and feeding. With a commitment to achieving meaningful outcomes, our experienced occupational therapists create tailored intervention plans designed to unlock each child’s full potential.

Tailored Occupational Therapy Sessions

Our one-on-one occupational therapy sessions are meticulously tailored to address the unique needs and goals of each child. Through a blend of purposeful activities and play-based interventions, our therapists engage children in stimulating exercises within a supportive environment. From sensory integration exercises to fine motor skill activities, our sessions are designed to promote skill development while fostering independence and confidence.

Session Locations

While the majority of our sessions are conducted at our welcoming clinic in Frenchs Forest, where children have access to our extensive resources and state-of-the-art sensory gym, we understand the importance of flexibility for busy families. Therefore, we also offer the option of arranging sessions at your child's home, school, or daycare. Regardless of the location, our primary goal remains the same: to ensure that your child receives the best possible care and support to thrive in their developmental journey.

Initial Parent Consultation

Our journey with your child begins with an Initial Parent Consultation, during which we collaborate with you to gain insights into your child's unique needs and aspirations. This consultation allows our occupational therapists to delve into your child's background information and work with you to identify key areas of focus. Following the consultation, our therapists provide a detailed summary outlining therapy goals, recommendations, and additional resources to support your child's progress.

Therapeutic Intervention

Building upon the insights gleaned from the Initial Parent Consultation, our therapy sessions focus on implementing personalised intervention plans tailored to your child's specific needs. Our therapists employ a diverse array of engaging activities aimed at promoting skill development and fostering independence. Whether it's sensory integration exercises, fine and gross motor skill activities, or social and emotional development exercises, our therapy sessions are designed to address developmental challenges in a fun and engaging manner.

State-of-the-Art Sensory Gym

Our state-of-the-art sensory gym serves as a dynamic environment for therapeutic activities. Equipped with a wide range of sensory equipment, including slides, rock climbing walls, swings, and a ball pit, our sensory gym offers endless opportunities for exploration and stimulation. Each piece of equipment is carefully selected to provide sensory input and promote motor skill development in a safe and supportive setting.

Group Sessions and Intensive Therapy Blocks

In addition to individual therapy sessions, we offer specialised group sessions aimed at fostering social skills, feeding, and handwriting. These group sessions provide valuable opportunities for children to interact with peers while honing specific skills in a supportive environment. Furthermore, during school holidays, we offer intensive therapy blocks, allowing for concentrated therapy sessions aimed at maximising progress over a shorter duration.

Comprehensive Assessments

Our comprehensive assessments offer valuable insights into your child's abilities and challenges, guiding our therapy approach and ensuring personalised care. Tailored to various needs, including educational supports, funding applications, and access to government schemes, these assessments follow a holistic approach. Our therapists combine standardised and non-standardised tests to provide a comprehensive understanding of your child's strengths and areas for growth.

Our Commitment to Personalised Care

At LEAP Centre, we are dedicated to providing personalised and effective interventions to support your child's developmental journey. Our team of passionate occupational therapists works tirelessly to ensure that each child receives the individualised care and attention they deserve.
