Occupational Therapists look at the whole person to work with individuals, their families, and carers across various environments, to support people to achieve optimal health and wellbeing through participation in the occupations of life.

The term ‘occupation’ is used to describe everyday things that we do throughout life, but also the things we do to be who we are, and to create a meaningful life and engage within our community.

At Light Coordination and Therapy Services, we have a team of Occupational Therapists with skills to complete assessments and provide ongoing tailored therapeutic support for children, young people and adults. Please click on the below options to see more:

Paediatric Occupational Therapy

Paediatric Occupational Therapy can support children with participating in activities of daily living that are meaningful to them. For children, this can include play, fine and gross motor skill development, social skills, self-care skills (mealtimes, sleeping, toileting, dressing), learning and sensory processing. 

Adult Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists can support adults to develop skills that are meaningful to them, as well as to promote and support their access of ongoing therapeutic support related to their goals, access Assistive Technology, develop their independent living skills, and support them to develop their skills to live as independently and meaningfully as possible across their lifespan.

Occupational Therapy Assessments

As part of their role, Occupational Therapists complete a variety of assessments for people of all ages, which help form the basis of ongoing therapeutic intervention, and can also support with evidencing the level of funded supports a person would require from their NDIS plan.
