Kids OT provides specialised Paediatric Occupational Therapy and intervention for children, their families and teachers. Working in a fun and positive environment, our experienced therapists work with children and adolescents in overcoming learning and developmental issues and assist them to function confidently, optimally and independently.
Our Paediatric Occupational Therapists focus on developing a wide range of skills, which are fundamental in facilitating academic learning and enable children to carry out their life roles to their maximum potential. These skills include, but are not limited to: fine motor and handwriting skills, gross motor skills, visual perception, information processing, sensory processing, attention, social development and general development.
Occupational Therapists at KidsOT are registered Medicare Providers. There are various Medicare Schemes that may provide partial reimbursement for occupational therapy services. These schemes require enrolment by your GP or your paediatrician.
