An Occupational Therapist can assess an individual's skills to determine any underlying difficulties which may be impacting on their performance. An Occupational Therapist may assist to develop skills in the following areas: Daily Living Skills, Play and Leisure Skills, Sensory Processing, Fine Motor Skills, Gross Motor Skills, Managing Behaviour, Emotional Regulation, Organisational Skills, Stress and Anxiety.
Different skills are required at different stages of a person’s life. An Occupational Therapist will assess and develop a program based on individual need.
The Occupational Therapist considers how the person’s underlying disability may be impacting on their skills, relationships and interactions with their environment.
