Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists assist people of all ages to engage in activities that bring meaning and value to their lives.

 
An Occupational Therapist works with you to explore and identify enablers and barriers in your life that affect your ability to engage in activities of daily living.

‘Occupation’ relates to a person’s daily tasks, which may be limited due to experiencing a disability, delay, illness and/or injury.  These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Self-care
  • Social skills and play
  • Emotional regulation
  • Sensory processing
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Cognitive skills

Through a combination of therapy to develop a person’s skills, adaptations to the activity or environment, and assistive technology, an occupational therapist supports the person in maximising independence and reaching their full potential. When a person is able to participate in the occupations meaningful to them as a unique individual, this supports them in achieving optimal health and wellbeing.
