Poor coordination, sensory issues, difficulty playing with toys or other kids, not being able to participate in what other kids are doing…as a parent or caregiver, these are all heartbreaking things to see your child go through.
Maybe you’ve tried helping your child at home or spoken to their teacher, but the problem persists. You’re tired of seeing them left out. Whether they’ve been given a diagnosis, or you’re not sure what’s wrong, we can show you what your options are and give you a plan of action.
Kids First’s experienced Occupational Therapists have been helping children in Sydney’s northern beaches overcome motor development and sensory issues since 2007.
At Kids First, you will meet experienced, fun and knowledgeable occupational therapists who have been working exclusively with children for many years.
Occupational therapy doesn’t just help fine motor skills like writing and holding objects. It helps children participate fully in daily life, learning, and play. Your child can gain more independence in our amazing sensory rooms, gyms, and social groups working with our experienced therapists. We’ll also equip you with the training and guidance you need to continue their therapy at home and in school.
My child has attended quite a few different therapies and programs at Kids First. I love that he so thoroughly enjoys the experience that he looks forward to coming. My goodness – that just makes my job as a parent so much easier. He has also made a lot of progress since coming here and that really keeps us coming back.
Care and kindness just oozes out of Kids First.
We have seen many therapists over the years, but the genuine interest in our family, as well as the knowledge and skill of the team has been life-changing for our child.
Every step of the way each practitioner has given myself and my son a voice. We feel like we are part of developing this journey with guidance and support and so many opportunities for advice.
The whole system approach where our team talk to each other to confirm the best solution for James. It’s amazing having everyone at the same practice.
Kids First has always been flexible to tailor make a program that works for both parents and the child. They know sometimes big and little people can have bad days and are always accommodating, kind and compassionate. Kids first is a one stop shop, it takes the stress out of shopping around for different therapists. I have been using Kids first services for 12 years and they are a great wealth of knowledge.
They do well by matching the right therapist for your particular child. Your child doesn’t just get handed to anyone, there is a whole process that takes time, and you don’t feel overwhelmed but rather put at ease.
