Providing Occupational Therapy for children with a disability in Ipswich

It’s a new year and we have lots of exciting changes happening at Xavier to better support children with physical and multiple disabilities and their families.  We are expanding our Allied Health service into the Ipswich area with a community clinic based in Eastern Heights.

We are working to get the clinic up and running by March 2020. The clinic will provide occupational therapy as well as speech therapy and physiotherapy to children and young adults.

What is occupational therapy?

The term “occupational therapy” can be confusing and mistakenly thought to be a therapy for adults (who have occupations). There are many ways that occupational therapy (OT) can support children with physical and multiple disabilities.

At Xavier, our team of Occupational Therapists (OTs) support children and young adults to become more independent and participate in everyday life with confidence and comfort. This includes at home, at school and in their communities.

We’re looking forward to supporting children and young adults in the Ipswich area to do more of the things that they love.
