Kids Occupational Therapy

1 – 25 years of age welcome


    Developing Skills for Everyday Life

    We provide pediatric Occupational Therapy (OT) to assist children and young adults in learning and developing the skills they need for everyday life. Occupational Therapy’s primary goal is to expand the individual’s performance and engagement in daily activities.

    At Kids Therapy Club, our Occupational Therapists support children to do what they want, need and have to do in their everyday lives. We do this by developing a range of target areas that are necessary to be independent and confident with everyday tasks and activities.

    Some of the target areas our OTs support children and families to develop resulting in greater independence and self-esteem include:

    • Fine and gross motor skills (otherwise known as physical development) 
    • Cognitive and learning skills
    • Executive functioning skills
    • Sensory integration
    • Social skills
    • Self-regulation skills 
    • Visual perception and visual-motor integration skills  
    • School-based skills such as handwriting
    • Self-Care skills
    • Healthy daily routines

    Our experienced Occupational Therapists collaborate closely with children, parents, and caregivers. Together, we’ll define goals and create a personalized therapy plan for your child. Based on their specific needs, progress, and goals, your Occupational Therapist will recommend the frequency and duration of therapy sessions, but the final decision is always yours.

    How We can Assist You …

    Our qualified team of Occupational Therapists offer various standardized assessment services, as well as play based assessments across all areas of paediatric OT.

    This includes functional capacity assessments, as well as written support for NDIS requirements.

    We cater to various challenges associated with conditions such as Developmental Delay, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and more.

    Kids can gain a lot from talking with our Occupational Therapists. Whether it’s trouble reaching milestones, handling self-care activities, or fitting in at home or school, we’re here to assist. We support children with various challenges like Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing Disorders.

    We offer 1:1 occupational therapy—including early childhood development and school based learning support across the Gold Coast and South Brisbane at our specialist offices in Parkwood and Yarrabilba.
