I provide occupational therapy for children on the Sunshine Coast (Australia) & online occupational therapy (eOT) for families further afield. I also run online training & face-to-face workshops for parents, teachers, & occupational therapists.
To help you explore my services, I have put short descriptions with links to more detailed information below. Please contact me if you would like to make a booking, require further information or have a particular need that you would like to discuss.
Occupational Therapy for your child
I provide economical OT checks, evaluations, and user-friendly, short-term occupational therapy programs for children ages 4 to 6. My services have a school readiness focus to prepare young bodies and minds for success at school. Do you need my services? Here is a checklist to help you decide.
To cater for different budgets and locations, I offer hands-on therapy (I work with your child regularly) or a supervised DIY option (you do the program at home with my oversight). Please see my brochure. In my brochure, Kindy children are 4 years. Prep children are mostly 5 years and are in their first year of school. Questions?
Training on using Fantastic Fingers® Program
I run a 60 or 75 minute introductory training session which I deliver online or as a face-to-face workshop. I tailor the content to suit preschool teachers, school teachers and/or occupational therapists e.g. this is the flyer for teachers. I use Zoom or Skype to deliver online training and I provide handouts and certificates.
I also provide more in-depth training on Fantastic Fingers® which can be delivered to suit your needs e.g. this is a flyer for 2 hour blocks for teachers. I also run one day workshops. Contact me to discuss your training needs.
Occupational Therapy services at your preschool or school
If you are based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, I am able to help you identify and support children ages 4 to 6 years. I offer discounted Get Fit for School Checks. These are described in my brochure. If you are interested in my school services e.g. handwriting readiness screens, motor and literacy groups, whole class interventions, or have a particular need, please contact me.
My 1 hour parent workshop 20 Terrific Activities to Prepare Your Child for School is very popular as it gives parents fun, user-friendly and low cost ideas.
I also run a 1.5 hour Popcorn and Animals Make My Muscles Strong! workshop which provides lots of inspirational and practical ideas in a play based context. Contact me for more information.
