Get started with occupational therapy for your child.

Intake Process for Occupational Therapy:

Step 1

Initial Consultation

Step 2

Assessment Session

Step 3

Parent Feedback Session

Step 4

Therapy Sessions

Initial Consultation

 

Your fist appointment is booked for 30 minutes and is parents or guardians only. You will meet the occupational therapist and go over background history, concerns and goals. From this, the therapist will then discuss which areas to assess.

Assessment Session

Occupational therapy assessments may take anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on the child and types of assessments being done. Parents are not required to sit-in during the session. For a list of the assessments we offer click here.

Parent Feedback Session

Your final appointment is also 30 minutes and parents or guardians only. The occupational therapist will go over results of the assessments, discuss therapy goals and recommend a therapy plan for moving forward.

Therapy Sessions

Once those 3 appointments are complete, we can move into your child's ongoing occupational therapy sessions. We offer 45 and 60 minute sessions which can be held either weekly or fortnightly. The sessions recur the same time and day each week so they are easy to remember and add to your schedule.
