  • For NDIS participants, we provide Therapeutic Support services for individuals aged 7 and above. This includes: supporting participants in gaining and applying functional skills to improve everyday participation and independence in areas that include personal care, communication, interpersonal interactions, community participation and personal mobility and movement. Prior to conducting therapeutic support intervention services, a Service Agreement will be provided for the participant as well as Initial Consultation sessions dedicated to discussing your child's needs along with their NDIS plan. Subsequent Consultation sessions will be required for the Occupational Therapist to complete any written reports.

  • Comprehensive assessments involve using standardized and non-standardized tests to determine your child's strengths and the difficulties that they face. This usually takes 60 minutes in a more natural environment for the child (i.e. the child's home, an outdoors setting such as a playground, or the child's school). During the assessment, an Occupational Therapist will not only be building rapport with your child, but will also be observing: fine and gross motor development, handwriting development, posture and balance development, visual perceptual skills development, executive functioning and organizational skills, play and social skills development, any self regulation difficulties, sensory processing discrepancies, self-care skills, as well as any needs for equipment prescription. A parent questionnaire will be provided in the beginning and a one-page summary of results and plan for therapy intervention will be delivered to the parent/caretaker via e-mail or snail-mail. An additional formal report detailing the assessment results as well as goals for future therapy will be provided based on request. Please take note that this will incur an additional fee as formal written reports require more time to complete. 

  • Individualized therapy sessions are determined after the Initial Assessment/Consultation and will be further discussed with the parent/care taker when the summary of results and plan for therapy intervention is also provided. Therapy sessions can be held at the park, your home, or your child's school. These sessions can be held weekly or fortnightly for 45 to 60 minutes depending on your child's needs. Take home activities will also be provided as needed.

  • We can also assess and provide recommendations for low-tech devices (i.e. pencil grips, sensory tools, slant boards to assist learning, trampolines, sleep aids, etc.) and high-tech equipment (i.e. adapted laptops and iPads) to assist your child's needs at home and in school. 

  Home Modification (Case by Case Basis)

  • AM Occupational Therapy is registered with the NDIS to assess and make recommendations for home modification requests that are required to enable a person with disability or a person returning home after injury or stroke to better access their own home.
