Occupational Therapists in Perth

Children are unique in their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual characteristics, and equally so in their skill development. Every child deserves the ability to learn and engage in therapy in a way that suits their individual personality and needs.

Occupational Therapists have expert training in child development, anatomy, physiology, and paediatric conditions, allowing them to assess and analyse the reasons behind a child’s difficulty in performing specific tasks and create a personalised treatment plan to address them.

I moved to Australia from South Africa in 2009 and have lived in Perth since 2013. I have 3 adult children of which 1 is still studying and living at home. I love to be active and being outdoors and enjoy walks on the beach and along the river with my husband and cavoodle, Molly. I enjoy gardening and socialising with friends and family. I love to listen to music and a sing in a community choir. I enjoy cooking new dishes for family and friends and experiencing different cuisines through travel.

I have worked as a paediatric Occupational Therapist for 33 years in a wide variety of roles in England, South Africa and Australia. I have provided both individual and group therapy and worked with a variety of diagnosis.

I have worked for the Department of Education Queensland as a consultative therapist in schools and specialised in Autism when I worked for AAWA for 8 years.

Sarah Viney

I am an Occupational Therapist who graduated in 2018. I have a strong interest working in paediatric disability. I enjoy participating in the community as an active member of the City of Perth surf lifesaving club and play AFL for Claremont football club. In my spare time I enjoy coaching/training, travelling, and spending time with family and friends.

Bachelor of Science (Occupational Therapy)
Circle of Security Zones of Regulation Alert Program

I have five plus years working with children with a range of disabilities. I have a thorough understanding of NDIS including writing end of summary reports, functional capacity assessments and goal setting to meet the children’s needs. I have had the pleasure of receiving mentoring from experienced Occupational Therapists in my area of interest which has supported me to develop my clinical skills. I enjoy working to meet the goals of clients in the location best suited to meeting a child’s goals either in the community, home, school, or clinic environment. I believe that consultation with family, friends, support workers, teachers and others who can support the child to achieve their goal is best practice to ensure generalisation in all relevant environments. 

My area of speciality is working with children with autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorder and attention hyperactivity disorder; however, I also enjoy working with children with a range of disabilities and their families.

I have a strong interest in early intervention, sensory processing difficulties/disorder, emotional regulation and providing support to parents and key stake holders to achieve the goals of their child.

I enjoy participating in the community as an active member of the City of Perth surf lifesaving club and play AFL for Claremont football club. In my spare time I enjoy coaching/training, travelling, and spending time with family and friends.
