What is Occupational Therapy - Gateway Therapies

Occupational Therapists are university qualified allied health professionals. We employ strategies that help individuals overcome barriers to participation in their daily living activities. Our interventions are selected with consideration for the evidence supporting intervention options, the individual’s particular abilities and needs, and the goals of the individual and their family.

We provide our services at our client’s home, school or child care facility. Therapy sessions are conducted one-on-one, and include a range of activities that focus on developing one or more of the following areas:

  • Fine motor skills (including handwriting)
  • Gross motor skills
  • Sensory processing
  • Visual perception
  • Attention/concentration
  • Social skills
  • Behaviour
  • Self care (e.g eating, dressing, toileting)

Our therapists liaise with other allied health professionals, medical professionals, teachers and carers where appropriate and provide regular report of our progress to all involved.
