Welcome back everyone and happy 2018! I hope everyone had a wonderful break over the Christmas and New year period. At Childworks we are getting back into the swing of things. Children have been back at school for a few weeks and there have been a number of new children referred to Childworks by their new classroom teachers who want to help their students to address any issues as soon as possible. We have seen a number of children with handwriting issues and also with problems related to attention/concentration. The children are enjoying therapy which is wonderful because Occupational Therapy works best when children are actually having fun!
We have a number of children, who attended Childworks for help with school readiness, start school this year and all reports indicate they are doing very well. It is certainly very rewarding seeing children who were struggling only months ago, sail into their new roles as kindergarten students at big school. Best of luck to you guys!
Sadly, we have lost our student Occupational Therapist, Alana, who was such a wonderful help toward the end of last year. She has returned to her studies at Australian Catholic University as her placement has been completed. We will certainly miss her and wish her all the best in the future.
I am currently seeing children both at the Dural rooms and at schools, preschools and homes as appropriate. We do have some availability at the moment, although after school times are very tight. If you would like to discuss your child’s needs with us you can call 9098 1635. Although we may not be able to answer immediately, we will get back to you to discuss your child’s needs, so just leave a message on the voice mail. It would be helpful if you could also indicate what times you are available for a call back.
That’s it for now. I hope everyone is energetic and excited about the year ahead and I am happy to talk to you soon. Happy new year and happy Chinese New Year for tomorrow, Friday 16 February.
