Occupational Therapy

Our dedicated and experienced team of OTs work with children and young people with developmental delay, physical disability and congenital and genetic conditions. We work closely with families to help your child to do more of the things that they love. To develop the skills that they need to learn, to experience life and to just be a kid. Through occupational therapy, we help children and young people to become more independent and participate in everyday life with more confidence and comfort, at home, at school, or out and about in their community.
