Therapeutic Interventions Provided By OT4You
OUR MAIN SERVICES
OT4You offers therapy sessions tailored to each individual and they may be conducted at our Bowen, Moranbah and Clermont clinics, the individual’s home, school within the community or via Telehealth. Outreach services are also available to surrounding communities. The location of the therapy intervention is determined by the needs of the individual and their family. Our therapists design a personal treatment plan to meet the unique needs of each individual. We are committed to helping your child develop into a strong, happy and confident individual.
Occupational therapists work with children and their families to improve engagement and participation in the everyday things that they need and want to do, but may have trouble with. These ‘occupations’ include playing, going to school, being out in the community, eating, dressing and toileting. At OT4You, our occupational therapists work closely with children and their families to identify the difficulties preventing a child from achieving their goals. They consider all areas of your child’s development, including play, gross and fine motor skills, sensory processing, social interactions, emotions, behaviour and thinking.
Our occupational therapists help children to learn and develop the skills they need through a play-based approach. This not only helps to engage the child in the therapy, but also maximises their potential to develop the skills needed to lead a full and happy life. We are a family-centred practice, and take into consideration the unique needs of your child and family, every step of the way. We believe that family involvement in the therapy process results in sustained and meaningful changes to the child and the family as a whole, and strongly encourage parental engagement in sessions.
At OT4You, we are passionate about children’s health. Our Accredited Practising Dietitian provides dietary advice to support children and their families with eating well for growth and development, and managing health conditions and diseases.
Good nutrition is important in the management of a range of childhood conditions, including feeding and sensory issues, selective eating, food allergies and intolerances, digestive problems, weight concerns, diabetes and more. We give parents the confidence to know what nutrition is best for their individual child and offer practical support to achieve it.
At OT4You, we empower parents and families to connect joyfully with children through food. We understand that each child has a unique food journey, and we support them to become confident and competent eaters who do better nutritionally.
What does working with a dietitian look like:
Our OT4You dietitian also sees adult clients, and is able to provide tailored nutrition advice for treating a wide range of clinical conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal concerns, food allergies and intolerances, weight concerns, nutrient deficiencies, diverticulitis, and renal conditions.
