Paediatric Occupational Therapy


Paediatric Occupational Therapy helps children and young people with different needs to develop skills to perform the purposeful activities that make up everyday life. The

Paediatric OT assesses the children’s sensory, motor, cognitive and psycho-social skills and abilities. The children can receive help in any of the following areas in which they may be experiencing difficulties:

  • Self-care – dressing, toileting, feeding
  • Movement and coordination – balance skills, ball skills, hand-eye coordination
  • Sensory processing
  • Handwriting
  • Planning and organizing skills at home or school

Referral: A referral can be made through a child’s GP (General Practitioner), Community Medical Doctor, PHN (Public Health Nurse), Educational Services, or other health professionals. Once a child has been previously seen by an OT, a review can be requested.
