Occupational Therapy Help
We’ll discuss with you any concerns and questions – and we’ll help you determine if we are the best service to meet your needs. You can schedule in a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to discuss your specific concerns.
2. Meet with your friendly therapist
Your therapist will call you to introduce themselves before you come in. They’ll ask what your child is interested in, and some other questions to ensure that first visit is a positive one. We'll meet with yourself and your child to further explore your concerns. We will play some games together and get to know your child and make sure they feel comfortable. We will explain to you how and why we will complete different assessment tasks, so we can determine what might be causing your child any difficulties.
If you would like a written report, we can complete one. If not, no worries, we always explain our findings and recommendations in plain English anyway. We will explain our assessment findings, and most importantly, how we can help your child achieve positive outcomes. We give you practical strategies from the very beginning (in the first session), so that you can begin to help your child at home.
We help you work out a plan. This includes working out which professionals can best help your child (e.g. Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy), best locations for therapy, and a schedule that fits in with busy family life. We can also help you apply for funding, navigate funding once approved, and connect you with practical help at home too (e.g. therapy assistants or support workers).
