What we Offer
We provide children with the tools and support to be able to functionally participate in and succeed in these activities throughout their day.
We support children to be the best they can be.
Teachers teach children. Occupational Therapists facilitate the ability to learn. Paediatric Occupational Therapy facilitates the opportunity to learn and grow by engaging with children in fun activities that would provide children with the skills to develop both socially and academically so they reach their full potential.
OT Learners at Your School
A dedicated therapist for your school and students.
OT Learners can provide your school with one therapist to work with teachers and students in your school. One major advantage of having one OT for your school means that teachers will be aware of goals and provided with strategies to continue Occupational therapy for students in between sessions.

Modifications, adaptions and grading of activities will be addressed to support best possible outcomes.
