What we do
One-on-one OT Sessions
We offer one-on-one occupational therapy sessions at home, school, daycare, after school care or at our clinic. Each session is tailored to your child’s individual needs.
School Consultations & Screenings
We team up with childcare centres, preschools and schools to offer individual therapy and assessments, screenings and a variety of talks and presentations.
From school readiness and feeding programs to surfing and boxing classes, we run a variety of group-based programs during the school term and holidays.
Workshops & Mentoring
We provide presentations, workshops and mentoring to OT’s, allied health professionals and other organisations working with children.
Our vision for children, their families and the therapists who work for Empowered Kids is to create a supportive and compassionate community where children’s strengths are recognised and celebrated.
When a spot becomes available, we will contact you to book an initial consultation with a therapist.
It’s also a time to connect and for us to answer any questions you have.
After the initial assessment our experienced Occupational Therapist will develop a personal plan for your child to achieve their goals.
Feedback on your child’s progress, strategies and recommendations for home and/or school are also provided at the end of each session.
