Occupational Therapists are specifically trained to assess and treat your child’s play skills, fine, gross and visual motor skills as well as to support emotional and sensory regulation skills.

Don’t wait. Early intervention has been proven to help children achieve their best both now and for later success. In general these difficulties do not just ‘go away’. Your child is not having these difficulties because they are lazy. You may find they are starting to avoid situations where they have to participate in an activity or will become frustrated when they have to do their homework.

This is because it is simply hard for them. A parent does not cause their child to have these difficulties, however a parent who has found the right advice and support can help their child to achieve success.
