Occupational therapists work with you to help your child participate and build independence in everyday activities such as dressing, mealtimes, learning and play.
Our occupational therapists can:
- Help your child to use their hands to reach, hold and manipulate objects during everyday activities
- Provide specialised equipment (such as hand splints, wheelchairs, mealtime equipment, bathing equipment) to assist in access, participation and safety
- Provide advice about sensory toys, activities and games suitable for your child
- Recommend adaptations to your child’s environment in home, school or day care.
Kites occupational therapists work closely with our exercise physiologists, speech pathologists, social workers, psychologists and dog assisted therapy teams to support children who may have social, emotional, sensory or behavioural challenges that impact on their comfort, sense of security and interactions with those around them.
Kites occupational therapists are registered with the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia (link opens in new tab).
