We're a specialist team of Occupational Therapists who are dedicated to helping children thrive.
We provide support and guidance to children, from infancy through adolescence, who experience diverse developmental patterns and challenges in their day-to-day activities. Our goal is to assist them in various areas, including movement, writing, concentration in school, play, fostering friendships, adapting to change, building resilience, exploring different foods, and engaging in sports and extra-curricular activities. We embrace and celebrate the unique strengths and perspectives of every child, valuing neurodiversity and fostering an inclusive environment where all children can thrive.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy (or 'OT') offers invaluable support to children and adolescents in various aspects of their developmental journey, empowering them to navigate their daily lives with greater ease and fulfillment. Through Occupational Therapy, your child can cultivate essential skills, fostering a more enjoyable and independent lifestyle that honours their unique strengths and abilities.
Our experienced team help children with a wide range of developmental challenges using our unique Puzzle Piece Methodology™ — our five-stage process ensures your child will always receive support tailored to their specific needs ang goals. Our Occupational Therapists draw upon a wide variety of tools and strategies which meets the unique strengths and needs of your child. We also work closely with you (the child's parents or carers) along with their teachers and other health professionals, to ensure we're all working towards the same goals thanks to our Hands Together Collaboration Approach™. And all our Occupational Therapists use our Fun First Philosophy™ to help make sure your child's sessions with us are enjoyable and engaging. Because we find when kids are having fun, they are more likely to make real progress.
How We Support Families
We support children to work towards their developmental goals through one-on-one sessions at our Frenchs Forest clinic (which is equipped with a purpose-built sensory gym). We also support children with in-school sessions across Sydney’s North Shore and Northern Beaches. In the school holidays, we run a range of popular group programmes to support children develop their school readiness, handwriting, social and emotional skills. In addition to the services that we provide for children, we also run regular parent workshops, teacher training sessions, and in-services.
