We are passionate about empowering people and the community
Our occupational therapist works with teachers and families to identify a child's individual and environmental abilities and problems related to school performance. Intervention focuses on programs that are person oriented and designed to improve performance of everyday tasks at school and other familiar settings.
A GP can provide you with a Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly enhanced Primary Care Plan). This allows you to claim partial reimbursement for up to five therapy sessions per calendar year.
Only a GP can assess if you are eligible for this program. Once you have your plan, you simply bring it with you to your assessment and we’ll complete the rest.
Teachers and parents seek out the help of an OT when they're concerned about children not meeting certain developmental milestones which are negatively impacting their performance at home, in school, or whilst participating in the community. It is important to address any concerns early so that children can develop the healthy behaviours needed for long-term positive development as they get older.
Refer for an assessment if you find children are falling behind in the following areas:
Organising personal belongings like school bags.
Dressing, toileting, eating.
Managing emotions, attention and concentration.
Total time allocated to package is 3 hrs
Total time allocated to package is 6 hrs
We can organise additional sessions following an assessment. These can be arranged to be completed either at the child's home or at their school, and will be charged at the standard hourly rate for occupational therapy or part-there-of.
