Your child’s job or occupation is playing, which is critical to learning, social development and co-ordination skills.
We can help your child develop the skills to enjoy play time, enjoy learning at school and participating in new activities. All this leads to a better quality of life for your child.
When should you consider an Occupational Therapy Assessment for your child?
- Sensory seeking/processing difficulties: If your child has trouble sitting still, is overactive, easily distracted, hyperactive or behaves badly in public places, then our assessment can help provide you with answers.
- Poor body awareness: If your child is having difficulty with poor co-ordination, tripping-over a lot or is playing rough with other children, then we can help your child with these skills.
- Low muscle tone: If your child is suffering low muscle tone, or needs help standing by using walls, tables or people we can help improve muscle tone and strength in a fun way.
- Behavioural: Is your child sometimes the model child or student, but other times difficult to control?
- Movement difficulties: Does your child avoid play time or sports? Do they have poor co-ordination or an unwillingness to try new activities?
- Self-care: Does your child have difficulty dressing themselves? Or have trouble using a knife and fork?
- Handwriting difficulties: Is your child struggling with writing compared to their peers or siblings when they were the same age?
