How to know
if a child needs
If your child has difficulty with everyday home, school or community activities, or learning new skills are challenging, your child could benefit from seeing an occupational therapist.
We provide services to clients referred through daycare and schools, GPs or other health care providers, as well as self-referrals.
We also provide services to participants on the NDIS with funding that is self-managed, and plan managed. Fees are set out by the NDIA.
Consultations are tailored to the client’s capacity, and can range from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, and can take place in various settings.
We work closely with families, carers, schools and other health care providers to support children.
