Registered NDIS therapy providers Ipswich: Supporting children to have fun with therapy at home

We recently expanded our team of paediatric therapists into the Ipswich area enabling us to support more children with a disability through occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy. We currently have availability for both face-to-face and telehealth sessions.

Therapy at home

One of the ways that we support children with a disability and their families is by providing support and ideas for therapy at home, to supplement their formal therapy sessions.

Therapy at home doesn’t need to feel like therapy. It can feel like play or like every day activities that you do as you’re going about your day. Here are some quick tips from our Ipswich based Occupational Therapy team.

How to have fun with therapy at home

Choices: Have a couple of activity options so that your child can choose. This makes them feel in control and ready to have fun!

Props: Have some special toys/activities that are just for therapy. Keep them in a therapy box so your child knows that this box is full of fun stuff!

Take a break: Every day is different and if therapy isn’t working one day then don’t do it. There’s always tomorrow!
