Paediatric Services

Our caring and highly skilled paediatric occupational therapists work with children of all ages to enable them to perform activities that they need or want to do within their everyday lives.

We address challenges and provide support to children across a number of areas that impact on their ability to participate in activities, including sensory, motor, social emotional and academic development. From early childhood, some children require this extra support to achieve key developmental milestones. In adolescence, some teenagers require support with building meaningful independence, managing their transition to high school, forming friendships, developing routines to promote learning or obtaining assistive technology to enable them to perform tasks more effectively.

Paediatric occupational therapy works for children at each of these stages, improving learning and skills, whilst also offering parents guidance to improve their child's quality of life and independent living.

Our Approach

All treatment is individualised, goal focussed to the needs of the child and developed in collaboration with families. We offer a family-centred approach that integrates best-practice models to ensure therapy is provided within the child’s natural settings of home, school, preschool and community.

National OT’s approach is family centred and can include one or more clinicians covering multiple disciplines. A paediatric occupational therapist can work individually to provide support that meets the child’s needs and goals, or collaboratively as part of a broader health team that includes physiotherapists.

If you are seeking paediatric occupational therapy services under the NDIS, we are fully registered and are waiting to assist you.
