Occupational Therapy

Paediatric Occupational Therapists help your child to participate in activities that occupy their day; such as sleeping, dressing, eating, toileting, socialising and playing whilst feeling safe, secure and confident. A good time to have an Occupational Therapy review is prior to starting kindergarten. Most children are sleeping well, feeding themselves, able to draw a basic shape and toilet trained during the day. Paediatric occupational therapists can also provide formal assessment and intervention for Sensory Processing Disorder / Difficulties. The Occupational Therapists at Adelaide Paediatrics use a holistic approach to work together with children and their families.

They can provide assessment, therapy and consultation around:

  • child development (from infancy to adulthood)
  • disability issues, including Autism Spectrum Disorder and Cerebral Palsy
  • activities of daily living, such as sleeping, dressing and toileting
  • fine motor skills, including coordination and strength
  • participation in activities and everyday routines
  • behavioural issues and positive behaviour support
  • relationship and attachment difficulties
  • mealtime management
  • auditory processing
  • social skills
  • play skills
  • sensory processing and praxis
  • attention and concentration
  • self-regulation and alertness
  • family issues
