Occupational Therapy for Children

Occupational therapy focusses on people with physical, sensory and cognitive disabilities to help them be independent as much as possible. A child’s occupation is mainly playing and learning, we evaluate and manage skills for playing, school performance and daily activities and manage these to cope developmentally with their age. In these performance areas, our occupational therapists help improve their physical, cognitive, sensory, motor skills, behaviour, social skills, self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.

 

In our Darwin & NT therapy locations, we specialise in:

  • Sensory Integration Approach
  • Developmental Play Approach

Occupational Therapy for Adults

Occupational therapists working with adults provide intervention with the aim to improve, maintain or prevent loss of independence and function. This can be completed through equipment provision, development of exercise programs and adaption with the practice of techniques. Occupational therapists cover a wide range of different conditions and are capable of providing interventions for sensory, mental health, cognitive, social and physical limitation.

In Darwin, we can treat a mixture of different functional levels from independent to fully assisted within daily activities and work with a client-centred approach to therapy, to ensure the outcome is as meaningful as possible for our clients.

My specific areas of experience and training:

  • Cognitive orientation to occupational performance approach (not certified however still able to use this approach)
  • Fine motor & hand therapy principles (excludes splinting)
