Occupational therapy is a skills-based intervention that isn’t just for children that have clinically diagnosed conditions or disorders. If your child is struggling to keep up with peers, in school or not meeting developmental milestones they may benefit from extra support. With a strong culture of respecting individuality, affirming neurodiversity, and celebrating all strengths, Outcomes Therapy aims to recognise and embrace the whole child, their significant others, and their life goals, to determine their journey to success.
No one person is the same as anyone else, and our goal is to see your own outcomes realised, not someone else’s plan for success. Begin the journey to realise your child’s own future outcomes today.
Concerned about any of the following behaviours or milestones?
Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move. Whilst our expectations on the timeline for each skill can broad, if you have concerns regarding the below it may be time to schedule an assessment:
Poor independence in daily living skills such as toileting, bathing or eating
Coordination and fine motor concerns
Messy or slow handwriting
Difficulty making friends or playing with other children
Meltdowns and tantrums
Behaviour concerns from childcare, kindy or school
Poor attention or concentration
No safety awareness (always climbing, running and on the go)
Picky eating or refusal to eat
