Paediatric Occupational Therapy
Childworks is a paediatric Occupational Therapy (OT) practice based in Northern Sydney. Our focus is providing comprehensive and affordable Occupational Therapy for children aged three and a half through to the end of high school.
Childworks helps children from Dural, Castle Hill, Kellyville, Glenhaven, Kenthurst, Glenorie, Galston, Annangrove, Cherrybrook, West Pennant Hills, Baulkham Hills, Parramatta, Pennant Hills and Carlingford. When you bring your child to Childworks, we assess them individually using clinical observation and internationally recognised, practical tests and games, designed to highlight any issues they may have. We then create a comprehensive programme based on your child’s strengths and weaknesses as well as the needs of the family. We implement this programme over a series of one-on-one sessions. We work closely with parents, school teachers, school counsellors and doctors to implement the programme. We ensure your child’s progress carries over to school and home environments.
For every child, transition to school is a big step. Some children need a little help to get ready for and to make that step into big school. Childworks can help. We will assess your child’s strengths with respect to school readiness, as well as areas where they may need some assistance.
Austism Spectrum Disorder
Occupational Therapy can help your child to participate in everyday routines and activities. Many children who fall within the spectrum, find ordinary life difficult.
If your child is struggling at school, then handwriting difficulty may be one of the issues. Handwriting requires a complex skill set involving a combination of physical, perceptual, cognitive and sensory processing components. most of us take these skills for granted! But some children struggle to put everything together and that is where Childworks can help.
