Services

Kerri-anne Telford Paediatric Occupational Therapy offers a range services, including sessions run in the sensory gym/play room at the clinic or sessions in the community; such as schools, kinder and childcare. 

Occupational therapy sessions are goal-directed and emphasize the importance of the child’s ability to feel good about their own self and achieve a higher level of skill mastery – be it play or motor skill development or being calm and engaged in their world. 

The goal of therapy is to provide the child with the right challenges to move to move him or her forward developmentally and for therapy to be rewarding and fun. 

We foster positive relationships between the parent, child and therapist as recognised in best practice. 

Children typically love their therapy sessions and they can’t wait to come back again.

We focus on a child’s development to find the underlying cause impacting their ability to move forward and address these using a range of developmental interventions, strategies and skills-based training.

  • Sensory processing challenges

  • Fine and gross motor skill development

  • Social emotional development

  • Neurodiversity Support
