Why Choose Outcomes Therapy?
We prioritise the training and development of our team members, ensuring they have enough time in their week to complete all required task AND continue to learn the latest skills to deliver the best OT intervention for our families
We work within a Neuroaffirming framework for children with developmental concerns – we meet the child
We work in a holistic way with all the important people in the child’s life where possible (parents, siblings, other therapists, school or childcare staff) so that goals can be targeted more specifically and be reached more efficiently.
Our aim is to empower YOU to work with your child in easy and effective ways at home so that goals can be reached and problems solve more quickly.
Our sessions may be clinic-based or mobile depending upon your needs (e.g., accessed in your home, Childcare or school *)
We have extensive experience in assistive technology and equipment that your child may need.
We offer group programs so that your child can be amongst peers who are just like them.
We partner with a number of schools across the Moreton Bay regions to ensure that teaching and learning staff are up to date with knowledge on the conditions and difficulties they encounter in the classroom on a daily basis.
We offer a range of Professional Development sessions to schools, professionals and parents across Moreton Bay to upskill those in contact with children with additional needs on a daily basis.
Individual Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy is focused on using fun and engaging activities to work on success in the skills required to complete our daily activities or occupations.
An Occupation refers to all the tasks or activities that a person:
Wants to do (e.g., play, interests, hobbies, eat)
Is expected to do (e.g., reading, writing, academics, dress, toilet)
These interventions may be focused on the following domains:
- cognitive and attention skills required to organise oneself, focus in the classroom and other environments, play, or work.
- social interaction skills to function within different environments, make and keep friends.
- fine motor skills for handwriting, dressing, self-care tasks.
- gross motor skills to join in with peers in sports, the playground, to navigate their environment and sit up on the mat at school.
Occupational Therapy Assistance
Our Occupational Therapy Assistants are 3rd and 4th (Final) Year Occupational Therapy students, who come to us with energy, enthusiasm, and a host of experience in what OT does.
Using an Outcomes Therapy OTA allows families to use their therapy budget more efficiently, as they can provide support in skills development (fine and gross motor), travel training, cooking skills, independence with self-care activities and social development, at a reduced cost – all whilst following the plan of your treating therapist.
