Screenings can be conducted at various schools and preschools upon request. An Occupational Therapist will come to you on site, and screen each child across a range of developmental areas (Sensory, Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Visual Perceptual skills, etc). A report is then written which is sent to the parent and/or carer with recommendations & suggestions. Post-screening offers include group therapy, resource recommendations, parent education & teacher professional developmental workshops.
An initial assessment is booked for 90 minutes where a series of specifically chosen standardised and non-standardised tests are carried out on your child.
Our meet & greet sessions are designed for those families who may not be sure on whether or not OT will be best suited to them.
We feel that it is important to conduct review assessments for children who have participated in therapy on an ongoing basis.
Following an assessment, individual therapy sessions of 45-minutes each may be recommended for your child.
Our group therapy programs include school readiness programs, music and movement groups, Motor Skills groups, fussy eating groups and social skills groups.
School-based therapy is beneficial for the child as it allows for a direct relationship between the therapist and the teacher. (School visits are subject to availability.)
Parent & Teacher workshops can be tailored to meet your needs and can be held on site or at our Happy Dots clinics.
We stock a wide variety of OT based resources & products that we feel your child would benefit from a result of attending our therapy sessions. We have a selection of resources available in each of our clinics.
We are able to offer home visits on a regular basis, or as a one off consultancy based visit to help set up strategies for your home environment. Home visits are subject to availability & location.
