Occupational Therapy Services for Kids

Are you worried that your child may not be reaching developmental milestones?
Children of all ages can get the help they need to reach their potential and be the best they can be with Occupational Therapy (OT).

A child’s role in life is to play and interact with other children. Our Physio Inq Menai Paediatric Occupational Therapists will evaluate your child’s current skills related to play, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group so they can make recommendations for your family as to any assistance your child may require to achieve their goals.

Our local Physio Inq Menai Paediatric Occupational Therapists work with children of all ages and their families to help children of all ages perform daily activities that they may find challenging by addressing sensory, social, behavioural, motor, and environmental issues.

Our Occupational Therapists utilise the latest research and technologies in their field to assess and design rehabilitation programs that are evidenced-based, efficient and effective ensuring your child is always receiving first-class services.

Paediatric Occupational Therapists have skills and experience in helping children through crucial periods of development with activities such as:

  • Self-care: dressing, bathing, using the toilet, eating, doing chores, making a snack, and organising themselves.
  • Play and leisure: playing alone or with others, imaginary play and participating in leisure/sport activities.
  • School: tasks involved with participating in a learning environment such as concentrating, following instructions, and handwriting and typing skills.

There are many reasons why a child may need support to participate in everyday activities. Occupational Therapists can help children who have challenges related to:

  • Fine motor and gross motor skill development
  • Self-regulation and behaviour
  • Sensory processing
  • Attention
  • Coordination
  • Cognition and learning
  • Visual perception
  • Handwriting
  • School preparation or readiness
  • Self-care for activities of daily living such as dressing, showering, toileting.
  • Social skills
  • Behavioural and emotional regulation
  • Assistive devices and technologies
  • Learning difficulties

Physio Inq Menai Occupational Therapists will set goals with your family and child, and support your child to achieve these goals by:

  • Helping your child to build their skills through targeted and fun activities.
  • Providing you with specialist advice and support to adjust your child's activity or environment, to help your child to participate better. This could involve supporting your child with specialist equipment.
  • Providing guidance to you and to other important people in your child's life, such as teachers, so that you know how to support your child to reach their potential every day.

We will assist you and your family in any way that can improve daily function and activities. After an initial assessment, your Physio Inq Menai Occupational Therapist will coordinate with you, other relevant professionals, carers, and family members to assist in developing a treatment plan and strategy that is best suited.
