Children's Occupational Therapy Services in West Gippsland

Our comprehensive paediatric occupational therapy services are offered via Zoom.

Occupational therapy services focus on enhancing various aspects of a child’s development to improve their overall quality of life. Our experienced therapists help you and your child address a wide range of challenges, including:

  • Independence Skills: We work with children to develop essential life skills such as dressing, feeding, and grooming, fostering independence and confidence in their daily activities.
  • Sensory Processing: Our therapists assess and address sensory processing difficulties, helping children better understand and respond to sensory stimuli in their environment and providing strategies to support their engagement in different environments.
  • Motor Skills Development: We provide targeted interventions to improve gross motor skills (such as coordination and balance) and fine motor skills (including hand-eye coordination and dexterity), essential for activities like writing, drawing, and using utensils.
  • Self-Regulation: Through various techniques and strategies, we support children in developing self-regulation skills, including emotional regulation and coping mechanisms for managing stress and anxiety.

We offer a range of assessments to better understand each child’s strengths, challenges, and therapy needs. Assessments may be completed as once off services or as part of comprehensive Occupational Therapy programs.

  • Functional Capacity Assessments: Comprehensive evaluations to assess a child’s ability to perform daily tasks and activities independently.
  • Sensory Processing Assessments: In-depth assessments to identify sensory processing difficulties and develop targeted interventions to support sensory integration.
  • Adaptive Behaviour Assessments: Evaluations to assess a child’s adaptive functioning and identify areas for skill development and support.
  • Fine Motor Skills Assessments: Detailed assessments focusing on fine motor skills, including precision, coordination, and hand dexterity, essential for activities like writing, drawing, and manipulating objects.

We are proud to offer our services to participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Our therapists are experienced in working with NDIS participants and are committed to providing individualized support to help children achieve their goals and maximize their potential. Assessment reports can be used to support applications to access the NDIS or in NDIS reviews.
