Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with children on increasing independence in everyday activities. We assess and analyse where issues are arising and causing barriers, if they are physical, emotional, social or sensory.

Speech Pathology

Speech pathologists work in the areas of communication and swallowing disorders. They also assist children and families in reaching optimal function in social settings and getting along with peers by developing play and social skills.


Our dietitian Justine offers individual sessions and joins our Occupational Therapist and Speech Pathologist for our food learning clinics. Justine assists families in assessing and planning appropriate nutrition via food or supplements.
