Occupational Therapist

Occupational Therapists assist people of all ages to engage in activities which bring meaning and value to their life.

 An Occupational Therapist works side by side with you to explore and identify enablers and barriers within your life affecting your ability to engage in activities of daily living.

‘Occupation’ relates to the tasks which a person does in their day to day life, which may be limited as a result of experiencing a disability, delay, illness and/or injury.  These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Self-care
  • Social skills and play
  • Emotional regulation
  • Sensory processing
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Cognitive skills

Through a combination of therapy to develop a person’s skills, adaptations to the activity or environment, and assistive technology, an Occupational Therapist supports the person to maximise independence and reach their full potential. When a person is able to participate in the occupations meaningful to them as a unique individual, this supports them to be able to achieve optimal health and wellbeing.
