participate in more independent, meaningful and fulfilling life roles. Our paediatric Occu-
pational Therapy programs are designed and run by therapists specialising in child de
velopment and the activities within these programs are graded to meet individual chil
dren’s needs. Sessions are developed with kids in mind to ensure that they are fun,
positive, achievable, engaging, stimulating and playful.
