What is Occupational Therapy? An Occupational Therapists' primary goal is to enable clients to participate in activities of daily living. For children, this can mean helping to improve cognitive, physical, sensory, and fine and gross motor skills all of which can lead to enhanced self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment.

Helping your child achieve success in using newly learned skills!
Your child may learn wonderful new skills in a 1:1 setting but struggle to apply these skills to different environments. Groups are the perfect next step to teach generalisation, or a great addition to 1:1 therapy.
