Occupational Therapy

Kids First’s experienced Occupational Therapists have been helping children in Sydney’s northern beaches overcome motor development and sensory issues since 2007.

Improved behaviour, learning and self-esteem are just some of the Occupational Therapy benefits your child could gain from fun sessions in our purpose-built OT gyms.

Does your child need help with:

 ♦ Fine motor skills, so that tasks like handwriting and cutting are easier

 ♦ Gross motor skills, so that activities involving balance or sport can be enjoyed

 ♦ Attention and concentration, so that learning is less challenging

 ♦ Social skills and emotional regulation, so that making friends is easier

 ♦ Self organisation, so that daily planning and sequencing tasks is less stressful

 ♦ Self care skills, so that activities like toileting and eating are more successful

 ♦ Managing behaviours, associated with Autism, ADHD and other special needs

 ♦ Fussy eating or feeding problems, that cause conflict and concern for your child’s health
