One-on-one Occupational Therapy sessions are one of the best ways to help your child’s development.
In these sessions, your child’s Occupational Therapist will work with them on their specific goals through a range of activities
and each session is tailored to your child’s exact needs.
If your child is new to Occupational Therapy, we’ve outlined how it works below and you can also read our FAQs.
Your child will be booked in for an initial consultation with the therapist who has the most experience in the areas your child is struggling with. Depending on your child’s needs they may be booked in for an assessment or into treatment. This will be determined during the initial phone interview.
Our assessments take approximately 1.5 hours and involve a series of standardised and non-standardised tests specifically chosen for your child to complete. This is so we can thoroughly understand your child’s challenges and needs to ensure their OT sessions are tailored to meet their needs. It also acts as a benchmark to understand the degree to which your child is struggling in certain areas and to measure their progress throughout their time with us. Following the assessment a comprehensive report will be written, outlining the goals for your child and guidelines for their therapy interventions.

One-on-one OT Sessions
At the start of your child’s one-on-one sessions, their Occupational Therapist will set therapy goals with you and your child. Your child’s OT will then tailor the session activities to these specific goals. Depending on what skills your child is working on, this could include handwriting, improving their gross motor co-ordination or learning how to regulate their own behaviour. Whatever it is, the activities will be building your child’s skills. Your child’s OT may also suggest activities and exercises to do at home during the week to help your child continue practicing their skills and incorporate them into their daily life.
We’ll recommend the length of your child’s sessions (between 45 minutes – 1 hour) and how long they come to us for depending on your their needs, goals and progress, however, this is always up to you.
