Our Occupational Therapy
At Kids’ Space OT, we provide an individualized and holistic therapy service to enable each child to achieve their goals. Therapy sessions are play based and goal directed. We use your child’s interests and strengths to build on the areas in which they are having difficulties we work closely with the child’s family to identify and treat the underlying difficulties rather than simply practice tasks so that we can build a strong foundation on which to build on. This enables the child not only to develop new skills but also to improve their overall confidence and self-esteem.
