The Occupational Therapist has an in-depth understanding of Early Childhood Intervention, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Global Developmental Delay, Intellectual Disability, Anxiety and Disability. The Occupational Therapist works with parents to help them understand what environments are best suited for their child’s individual profile, and what ways of playing can facilitate their child’s development of all of the above skills. The Occupational Therapist has a range of multi-sensory equipment to support the child’s sensory motor development in the context of safe and secure relationships with their parents, therapists and peers. The Occupational Therapist works with the Music Therapist to help the child become regulated and feel more confident and secure during sessions when tone, rhythm and tempo are added to their body movement. The Occupational Therapist works using a DIRFloortime® approach which involves working on social emotional regulation and development using the body and space.
