Our occupational therapists focus on your child’s goals and aspirations!

St.Giles Occupational Therapists have experience working with children on a variety of functional goals aimed at increasing independence and participation, which includes support within the home, school, place of employment and/or community settings. An Occupational Therapist can help your child to build skills and confidence to take part in everyday activities. They can help develop independent living skills and participation in school. Occupational Therapists also help children and young people to play and participate to their full potential and reach their goals.

Our Occupational Therapists can help your child to:

  • Be more independent at home, school or work
  • Look after their own personal care
  • Manage their emotions
  • Be able to use cutlery and eat meals without assistance
  • Learn how to cook

  • Get through big changes such as moving from kindergarten to school
  • Be a part of their community
  • Participate in group activities
  • Access specialist equipment
  • Sleep better and manage fatigue

Our occupational therapists can also teach parents and carers:
