What Occupational Therapy services do we offer?
The Spark Therapy Services offers a variety of Occupational Therapy services to meet the needs of children and their families. Our clinic sessions take place at our Diamond Creek Road clinic. Our therapists also visit clients in their home setting, at school, kinder or childcare.
Before your initial appointment
Ahead of your initial appointment with one of our therapists, we will ask you to complete and return some forms. This includes a parent questionnaire and a teacher questionnaire (if applicable) to pass on to your child's educator. This provides us with valuable information about your child.
Generally your initial appointment is a parent only session. This allows us to talk with you, gather some background information, set goals and begin initial problem solving before we begin working with your child at the follow-up appointment.
Paediatric occupational therapists provide assessments of children’s developmental strengths and challenges.
We work collaboratively with families to develop goals and therapy plans to support their child’s development.
EDUCATION & WORKSHOPS
We provide education and coaching to build capacity and confidence in caregivers and the child's educational team.
We work collaboratively and share information with a child’s team - their educators and other health professionals - to support the best outcomes for the child and their family.
We also deliver parent and educator workshops as we believe strongly in sharing information that enables a child and their family to flourish.
