More than motor skills

With specialised training in child development, physiological conditions and unique sensory processes, Occupational Therapists facilitate meaningful early intervention and have a direct impact on a child’s skill development outcomes and ability to thrive.

A helping hand

Occupational Therapy uses children’s natural curiosity in teaching them functional skills for daily life. Its practitioners help to develop their fine motor skills, handwriting, planning and organisational ability, self-care and social skills for application in meaningful activities of home, school and play.

Cracking the code

Occupational Therapists have a knack for helping parents understand how their child learns and experiences their surroundings, providing valuable insights and tailored therapeutic strategies that can be employed at home to support their continued development. Once barriers are removed, it becomes easier for parents to align with their child’s unique experience and cater to it throughout the developmental stages to come.
