About Paediatric Occupational Therapy

Fostering Independence and Skill Development

Our centre provides comprehensive paediatric occupational therapy services, focusing on helping children achieve independence in daily activities. We cater to children facing challenges due to developmental delays, sensory processing disorders, neurological conditions, and other physical or cognitive difficulties. Our occupational therapists are dedicated to enhancing fine motor skills, sensory integration, hand-eye coordination, and daily living skills like dressing, feeding, and grooming.

Our therapy involves fun and engaging activities, tailored to each child’s interests and developmental level. These activities are designed not only to improve specific skills but also to boost the child’s self-esteem and confidence. We place a strong emphasis on sensory integration, aiding children who are overly sensitive to stimuli as well as those who seek sensory input, to better process and respond to their sensory environment. This can lead to improvements in attention, behavior, and social interactions.

Collaboration with parents and caregivers is a key part of our service. We provide strategies and resources for supporting therapy goals at home, emphasising the importance of a supportive home environment for the child’s continued growth and success.

To accommodate the diverse needs of families, we offer our paediatric occupational therapy services in our clinic and through mobile visits. This ensures that every child can access care in the most comfortable and convenient setting, paving the way for every child to reach their fullest potential.
