FUNctional Therapy is a paediatric occupational therapy (OT) practise delivering goal focused, evidence based therapy in the Albury/Wodonga region. We focus on maximising independence and participation in daily activities for children and their families.
We deliver OT in contextually appropriate settings in a fun and engaging environment. This means we come to your home, or child's kinder, school or even the local park.
We provide specialist and up to date therapy based on current evidence and literature. We regularly up skill our therapists and understand the importance of continuously learning.
We help you and your child set meaningful and realistic goals, and are passionate about helping your child reach their full potential. We believe the most effective way to deliver therapy is play based in a FUN way.
We focus on what is most important to you and your child. It is our priority to make sure that you feel listened to and motivated to achieve your families goals.
OT’s are proficient in skill-teaching, modifying the task at hand or adapting the environment in order to make life that little bit easier. Our primary focus is to enable people to participate in activities of everyday life and to reach their full potential.
Paediatric OT’s specialise in children's main occupations; play, self-care, school skills and socialisation. We assess your child’s development, independence, fine/gross motor skills, cognition and visual/perceptual skills and provide therapy to enhance participation in activities in that are important in a child’s life.
