What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapists can help your child engage and participate in their everyday activities so they can achieve their best potential!
We are a family centered practice operating in Townsville that also visits the surrounding areas of Ayr, Ingham and Charters Towers.
Our philosophy is to help your child engage and participate in everyday activities to achieve their best potential. We aim to equip parents and caregivers with skills to assist the child with their ongoing growth and achievements.
We mainly conduct sessions in our clinic in South Townsville, however we also offer home, school and kindy visits. We conduct an initial assessment to determine your child’s strengths, difficulties in their everyday activities and to create individual goals.
