Occupational Therapy for children 

Our Occupational Therapists love helping children with developmental delays. They work with children one-on-one and provide a comprehensive assessment and report to identify issues in sensory, motor coordination and visual perception. 

Our Occupational Therapists focus on seven main areas of development:

  • Gross motor skills (movements of the large muscles of the arms, legs and torso)
  • Fine motor skills (movement of the wrists, hands, fingers and toes)
  • Emotional regulation
  • Social skills and behaviour
  • Sensory
  • Self-care (toileting, dressing, feeding)
  • Play

They can also help with school-based difficulties such as attention/concentration, handwriting, pencil control, copying and forming letters. Our Occupational Therapy clients in Townsville have the opportunity to have joint sessions with other disciplines such as Speech Pathology.
