Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with children who have difficulty with activities of daily living, including:

  • Self-care (e.g. toileting, dressing, feeding)
  • Sensory issues (e.g. around hair-brushing, loud noises, textures, food sensitivities)
  • Motor skills – fine motor (e.g. using a pencil or scissors) or gross motor (e.g. running and climbing) and postural control (e.g. sitting at a table to complete a task)
  • Attention – starting, finishing and sustaining attention to tasks
