Treatment Sessions

Sessions run for 50 minutes in length, followed by 10 minutes of documentation time. Treatment sessions may involve just the child, or be a combination of parent and child, parent only or the whole family. Occupational Therapy sessions utilise the power of “doing” in sessions (occupation!) so as to further develop skills within activities, as well as provide a relaxed and creative space for more in-depth discussions and problem solving. Our clinic rooms are equipped with suspended equipment (for example, platform and lycra swings) as well as a range of play equipment, games and resources. Treatment sessions can work on the following areas:

  • Sensory processing and integration (the ability to process information through the senses, organise and then respond appropriately)
  • Self-regulation (including building self- awareness and being able to manage attention, emotions and behaviour in age-appropriate ways)
  • Psycho-social skills (including social skills, communication skills, approach to tasks, self-esteem, confidence, motivation and problem solving skills)
  • Emotional skills (managing anxiety and low mood, learning about common triggers, understanding the link between thoughts, feelings and behaviour)
  • Fine motor skills (dressing, turning the pages of a book, handling scissors, brushing teeth, play skills, developing independence)
  • Writing skills (posture, pencil grasp, hand strengthening, letter formation, reversals, neatness, planning, basic sounds for spelling and knowing what to write, structuring writing composition
  • Auditory processing (tuning into correct sounds, remembering instructions, listening for key words, auditory working memory)
  • Executive Functioning skills (organisation, planning, being flexible, sustaining focus and perseverance)
  • Gross motor skills (jumping, crawling, catching, throwing, running, coordination and play)
  • Visual perceptual skills (puzzles, connect the dots, matching and sorting, copying pictures, scanning and locating, visualising shapes and orientation, drawing)
  • Parent support (understanding your child’s unique profile and responding to them in ways that encourage healthy development of skills, managing stress, awareness of parent’s own needs, processing grief and change as well as making confident and informed decisions)
  • Family systems (Including family members where appropriate to aid in treatment sessions and achieving goals, enhancing communication skills, patterns of behaviour and improving dynamics).
